Duak Sin: Your BALM OF LIFE has become a household uccesslty and.
comfort to my family. For general use as a toilet article it Is nil we desire; It
keeps the head clean of dandruff, the scalp and hair healthy, and manifests a
wonderful sanitary and curative power, whether internally taken or externally
applied. It acts as a preventive, as well as a cure for incidental Ills to which
all are more or less liable. It is harmless in all its various uses. The old, the
young, the sick, and the well will Hud it benetlcial. We found it excellent in
"second summer" diseases. I have bought for my family and personal friends
more tluiu a hundred bottles of the BALM; all are more than pleased with its
powers aud usefulness. Wishing you a well-merited prosperity, and the public
that blessing directly due to the general introduction and use of your BALM
OF LIFE, I am gratefully yours,
W. B. MOSES, Eleventh and V streets.
It is so generally useful that I must commend it to the public.

THE FOLLOWING LETTER:
Keokck. Iowa, May 30. 1SS3.
It is with genuine gratitude I bear testimony to the efficacy 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, and 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 five 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 aUo, 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 I have been, I am sincerely
yours, HELEN McCRARY.

Lakeside, Lake 0tabio, July S.
We are suiuiuerlns; in a little cottage ou the
shores at Lake Ontario in New York State. As
we sit contentedly in our summer-houses over
looking the lake anil read of the travels o the
thermometer in New York and Chicago we slph
with thankfulness. At n'.cht as we pull the
coverlet up a little closer our last thought is
of those poor city suITerers and we siph acatn,
this time in pity, aud sleep all the sweeter for
it. Our cottage is situated with several others
upon the lake shore. The land runs out in a
louc point, below which Is the pebbly beach,
where the fishermen sit patiently all day and
whore the fishiiur-boats enter with their stur
ceon and nets. There is auother point of land
opposite our row of cottages and ouly sepa
rated from them by a wide erode spanned by a
bridge. Upon this pohu is a low-roofed hotel
surrounded by porches, around which is a beau
tiful lawu, sloping to the water's edge, adorned
with trees and dowers. During the months
of July and Autttist the hotel is kept well filled
with visitors, but up to this time its chief pa
tronage i5 from the country people around,
who drive to the lake for a day's fishing or
boating. For the 4th of July au e:er:alu;uMU

the open-air theatre, where the pine-board seats
served for chairs and tables. There were those
unromantic couples who partook of sandwiches

such a pair. The woman with a loug, straight

of the multitude. The man" face wore a sad,
dejected look. I'erhaps he had found it a bad
plan to let her hold the basket. From the op
posite shore the grounds of the hotel presented
a strange appearauce. There was a long line
ofbucgies and horses draw up in a half "circle
faeingthe lake, and over the grounds swarmed
the holiday makers. In the afternoon when we
went over'we found that a base-ball match was
engaging general attention. The pri:e was to

Ve were seated under a wide-spreading tree
watching the passers-by when a number of In
dians descended upon us and began a game of
foot ball. A large crowd immediately col
lected to witness if. The idea seemed to be for
each Indian to trip up as many of his fellows
as possible. They kicked the " ball in all direc
tions, and with a dexterous movement one
would suddenly trip tip the nearest Indian and
send him sprawling on the grass. As the sport
became rather rough, we retired to a large hall
where there was to be an Indian dance. " After
waitiug for some little time, during which
the hall had been rapidly filling, an Indian en
tered and drew a circle on the floor with chalk.
He then placed within it a long beech. In a f ew
moments a side door opened and twentvormore
Iudian men and women entered. They had been
advertise', to appear in native costume, but
the braves were oressed in very dirty, but or
dinary clothes. The women, "with a few ex
ceptions, were perfectly hideous. They wore
cav calico sacks and woollen skirts of various
lengths, from beneath which peeped braided
Four of the men seated themselves on the
beach and becMi a weird chant, tapping their
right beelsonihe floor and shaking a sort of rat
tle made of skin and filled with pebbles. The
women then stepped into line aud bgn to
shutne their fee and revolve about the bench
until the chant ceased, and they slopped to mop
their faces vigorously. There was a hideous
old h&g who tieded the procession. Her sack
was of mustard yedlow adorned with tin but
tons; next to her" came an old crone in a purple
drs tie", about the waist with a rd bandana
handkerchief. There was one prey-looking
girl among them, whose shining black hair and
whit teeth were quit attractive. When the
men finally joined the dance it became more
animated: the women brightened visibly and
glanced up coquettishly into the men's gaunt
aces- They, too. snied to enjoy the exercise,
and whirled' about snapping their fingers atd
shaking their black locks wfth evident sUsiac
tion. The musicians presently rose and joined
the procession, aud after making several turns
about the bench they riled out "and suddenly
broke oft the wild ch&nt.
This closed the aftecnoou's entertainment,
and we went home to dinner and to rest beiore
the grand ball of the evening. Just beiore the
sun "dipped in all its rosy splendor into the lake
a rtl of wind arose and lashed the water into

the waves rolled up on the beach and rose

the caller with a mighty voice shouted -Face

were never tired of watching the antics of that

were some very pretty girls among the many

country place has its owtj distinct reel, and this
was unlike any we had ever seen. The couples
worked their way from one end of the long hall
to the other. They took flying leaps and swung
each other about," but it was "no: rudely done,
but quite in the spirit of the dance. It finally
wound up with an order from the caller, deliv
ered with a roar of eloccence, to "join hands,

indistinguishable blur of circling figures.
We left the ball-room then, threading our
way among the loungers upon the piarra to the
bridge. Seneath, the creek ran swiftly to join
the roaring lake. Atove, the stars twinkled
through a "mantle of Seecy clouds. We passed
the sweet-briar bushes, with their pink pe;ls
folded up for the Eight, and took ourselves to
pleasant dreams, while the merry dancers con
tinued their revels far into the night, and UEtil
