Mr. Mackey Learned How to Eat – Strength Magazine – March, 1924

Whenever Southern California anybody discovers a persistent indisposition for which the doctor can assign no adequate cause, or remedy, it is the usual thing to warn the ailing one that he, or she, may be suffering from “incipient tuberculosis.” In so far as the outward symptoms might indicate, they could just as easily be suffering from incipient cancer, Bright’s disease, or heart lesions-or any one of many other dreaded maladies, except that tuberculosis is the favored ailment in California. It sorter “belongs” with the climate, the orange groves, and pepper trees.
