ADDS TO OUR LONG LIST OF TESTIMONIALS
THE FOLLOWING LETTER:
Keokuk, Iowa, May 30, 18S).
It is with genuine gratitude I bear testimony to the eflicacy of COOK'S
BALM OF LIFE. Besides being a great sufferer with DYSPEPSIA in its many
forms, I had frequent attacks of ERUCTIONS OF GAS from the stomach,
which lasted from three to seven hours, aud were followed by very distressing
and alarming SINKING SPELLS, and for which I could find no remedy until
I called upon Dr. Dexter, of Washington, D. C. who told me that the best medi
cine for that symptom, and one he often prescribed for his patients, was
COOK'S BALM OF LIFE. I immediately procured a bottle, and after taking
three doses my stomach was relieved, and before I had used one-half the con
tents of the bottle that particular condition of my stomach was overcome, and
now, after Ave years and having had no recurrence of the trouble, I feel safe
in saying that the BALM CURED ME, for it is the first and only thing that
gave me relief. I have by its use learned its value in other directions also, and
consider it ONE OF THE VERY BEST FAMILY- MEDICINES IN THE
WORLD, and think myself unfortunate when I am without it. Hoping that
others may be as much benefited by its use as T have been, I am sincerely
yours, HELEN McCRARY.
PROFESSOR COOK. Washington, D. C, December 0, 16
Deak Sin: Your BALM OF LIFE has become a household necessity and
comfort to my family. For general use as a toilet article it is all we desire; it
keeps the head clean of dandruff, the scalp and hair healthy, and manifests a,
wonderful sanitary and curative power, whether internally tnkenorextcrnally
applied. It acts as a preventive, as well as a euro for incidental ills to which,
nil are more or less liable. It is harmless in all its various uses. The old, tho
young, the sick, and the well will llnd it beneficial. We found it excellent in
"second summer" diseases. I have bought for my family and personal friends
moro than a hundred bottles of the BALM; all aromoro than4pleased with its
powers nnd usefulness. Wishing you a well-merlted prosperity, and the public
that blessing directly due to the general introduction and use of your BALM
OF LIFE, 1 am gratefully yours,

A MIND-READER AND A AVIDOAV.
They Get a Young Married 3Ian into a Very
"A friend of mine had a very embarrassing
experience at one of Mind-Reader Bishop's per
formances at Masonic Temple a couple of years
ago," said a gentleman coming out of the Na
tional Theatre after -witnessing Mr. J. Randall
Brown's mind-reading exploits last Sunday
night. "My friend took his wife to see Bishop,
and they sat in a middle-aisle seat not far from
the stupe. He was a good deal of an enthusiast
on the subject of mind-reading, and when Bishop
wanted some one to aid him in his test of finding
a face In the audience which the person he ope
rates with has thought of myfnend volunteered
his assistance. He Is a strongly-built, full
blooded young fellow, the kind of man the mind
readers say makes a good subject. Bishop ac
cepted his offer.
"Now, it happened that in the audience was a
gay young widow with whom my friend was ac
quainted too well acquainted, his jealous little
wife thought. In fact, his wife was particularly
sore on the subject of that widow. I think my
friend and tho widow had been very good friends
befoie either of them was married. Any way,
my friend's wife didn't like the widow, aud he
"Well, Bishop blindfolded himself, as Brown
did to-night, grasped his assistant's or subject's
hand firmly in his own, and told him to fix his
miurt with all possible concentration and energy
on the face of the person in the audience whom
ho had selected. Then Bishop and his subject
(or victim, as it afterward turned out) started
off down the middle aisle, went clear back to
the door, then returned almost to tho stage up
one of the aisles along the 6tde of tho hall, then
rushed back again through tho middle ntsle.
Now, it happened that tho widow also had a
seat on tho middle aisle back a ways from the
stage, and each time Bishop passed her ho
paused for a minute, waved his hands over her
head, touched her pretty little bonnet lightly
with tho fingers of his disengaged hand, and
then moved on again. My friend's wife, of
course, was watchiug her husband and tho
mlnd-readcr eagerly. She noticed the pauses at
tho widow's seat, and she began to get uneasy.
The gray of her eyes grew deeper aud a little
fire Hashed from them. Bishop trotted my
friend up and down the aisle half a dozen times,
then arouud tho hall and up to tho stage agalu,
ju6t as Brown did with Congressman Stahlnecker
to-night, and every time he passed tho widow
there was that confounded pause. My friend,
of course, grew frightened, ab ho knew his wife's
eye was on him. And his wife meauwhile had
grown so excited that she could hardly keep her
"At last Bi6hop rushed back to the stage,
still hanging on to my friend'6 arm, took the
baudago off Ills eye6, aud proceeded to glance
over the house for the face ho had got an Im
pression of from his subject's mind during their
rushing around tho house. 1116 bubjec, mean
while, wa6 almost frightened to death for fear
Bishop would make a mistake and describe the
face of the widow, who, of course, he had not
thought of at least had tried not to think of
during the experiment. And :ny friend's un
easiness wasn't soothed auy by seeiug his wife's
belligerent eyes fixed on him with a determined
look that ho know meant a storm. As you can
imagine, ho cursed mind-reading Inwardly and
wished himself and Bishop and tho widow a
thousand miles away from there, aud solemnly
vowed never to bo caught In such a snap airaiu.
"At la6t, after rubbing hi6 eyes and wiplug
his perspiring brow, Bl6liop spoke. He said:
'1 Inivo had a very vivid impresblon conveyed to
me by the gentleman who Las acted as my iib-
ject. It 16 the face of a lady a young lady,
although It Is surrounded by crape. The com
plexion is brunette, the eyes are dark, the
brows delicate but rather heavy, tho noso thin
and regular, and the chin dimpled. I think
that .' Bishop made a motion to point in
the direction of the widow when my friend in
desperation interrupted him.
" 'You are wrong, Mr. Bishop,' the poor fel
low jerked out, iu rather excited tones. 'I
didn't think of a lady at all. The face I thought
of was that of the dark young man near the
window there,' and he pointed to the north side
of the hall, where a young cousin of his was
sitting on a raised row ot seats.
"Then my friend hastily left the stage aud re- '
joined his wife, who was so frigid she almost
gave him a chill. You can bet the subsequent
proceedings of Mr. Bishop interested both of
them no more, and when they got out of that
hall nt the end of the performance there was
some subdued but fearfully earnest talk, in
which the widow's name occurred several times.
My friend hasn't got done explaining the matter
yet to his wife, and I did think atone time there
would be a divorce."
