This sana- torium was established in the fooi- lills of tiie AdirondackE, treatment oeing absolfltely free. The Bulletin of the Canadian Tuberculosis association stages lisas the Metropolitan Insurance com- pany has through annual ejcanuaa- 4an of its employees located in their early stages. Patients been encouraged to remaia at the saaaioriuax, Mt. McGregor. their condition warranted return- ing 10 work. As there were no fi- nancial worries many patients havt recovered --vith remarkable rapidity. Since the sanatorium openefi in 1913. 3.597 Metroswlitaa employees have been treated at Mt. McGregor. Now the number of panents decreased to such an extent that there is no longer any need for such, a large institution aad so it is being closed. Henceforth patients will be treated aT the company's expense in sanatoriuais (sanatoria) located nearer to their homes. What is ihe lesson for us as remember that tuberculosis once heading the list as a cause of death is now a considerable way down the list and getting down lower, every rear? -The Metropolitan Life has dem- onstrated what can bs done by an organization which is guided by en- lightened good will and prepared to provide the necessary equipment and facilities. For thirty-two years the ccnroany has maintained a sys- tematic program of tuberculosis control among its employees. To- day this has borne frail.
