Dear Sir: 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 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, tho
young, the sick, and the well will find it beneficial. We found it excellent in
"second summer" diseases. I have bought for my family and personal friends
more than a hundred bottles of the BALM; all are more than pleased with its
powers and usefulness. Wishing you a well-merited prosperity, and the public
that blessing directly due to tho general introduction and use of your BALM
OF LIFE, I am gratefully yours,
W. B. MOSES, Eleventh and F streets.
It is so generally useful thot I must commend it to tho public.

THE FOLLOWING LETTER:
Keokuk. Iowa, May no. 1883.
It is with gcnulno gratitude I bear testimony to the efficacy of COOK'S
BALM OF LIFE. Besides being a irreat sufferer with DYSPEPSIA in its many
forms, I had frequent attaoks of ERUCTIONS OF GAS from tho 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 ono bo 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 tho con
tents of tho bottle that particular condition of my stomach was overcome, and
now, after five years and having had no recurrence ot tho trouble, I feel safe
in saying that tho BALM CURED ME, for it is tho first and only thing that
gave mo relief. I have by its uso 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 I have been, I am sincerely
yours, HELEN McCRABY.

"Women Would iLead Parisian Fashions
The Frenchwoman's Art of Dressing
The Latest Purls Gown Tho Chic of u
French ltonnct Tho Frenchwoman in
Special Correspondence of Sunday Herald.
Paris, July 5.
A Frenchwoman will suffer any torture if
only she can be beautiful. A four-hours' stance
at a Parisian modiste, watching the draping of a
bodice ou a pretty woman, has proved how
great is the Frenchwoman's patience and her de
termination to have things just right. Her fancy
at preeent is for the bodice without seams, ex- i
ceptlng, of course, those under the arms, and the
material has to be almost moulded to her, un
less, indeed, Bhe is statuesque in her outlines.
And to gain a properly fitted bodice of this sort
she will cnduie standing for hours at a time,
and feel that she has her reward when a man
friend pronounces her appearance commc il
TWO EEADERb Ol' PARISIAN FASHIONS.
If a Frenchwoman is informed that the Dueh
esse d'Uzes or Princess do Sagan h.is had cos
tumes like this, and that they stood without a
complaint while they were pinned and basted,
then she feels that she has made a success.
These two women, more than any others In bo
ciety, set the stamp on special fashions, and
each is as eccentric as possible. The Duchesso
d'Uzes is said to be a direct descendant of Louis
XIV aud Madame do Montespan, and this may
accouut for some of her eccentilcities. She is
devoted to hunting, and is 6ald to possess the
finest pack of stag hounds in France, while it is
announced that she can drivo a four-in-hand
with as much art a6 any man. Princess de Sa
gan Jb a little different, being essentially a
woman of tho world and, what is more, a most
charmintr hostess. Jier costumes are the de
light of Paris, for when she is driving the small
est shopkeeper out for a holiday feels a personal
pride In her and her appearance that is as odd
as it is admirable.
HOW FRENCHWOMEN DRESft.
The Frenchwomen, more than any others in
the world, know how to dress, to drive, aud to
make themselves tblng6 of most exquisite
beauty. Tho rage for heliotrope still continues,
and consequently Madame, out for the purpose
of seeing and being seen, is gowned in a velvet
aud wool combination of this exquisite 6hudc,
ha6 silk 6tockings and loiv shoeb to match, her
gloves are of tho same pale color, and on her
head is a crownless bonnet formed of heliotrope
and erCpe, and with a jet crescent stundiug
above a knot of tho crGpo just in front. Her
parasol is formed of frills of heliotrope ciCpe,
and tho fan in her lap i6 u sheer one of helio
trope gauze, with sticks of amber. It is jubt
such a symphony in costume as is only seen in
Paris, and only worn perfectly by a French
woman. Although hundreds of eyes arc look
ing at her she is utterly aud absolutely uncon
scious. Her bow to an acquaintance just pass-
-Ilouricb's Extra Rale Latter. Ask for it.
ing means the giving a smile, which in itself is a
perfect salutation. Do you suppose that
Madam has paid for that frock what an Ameri
can woman would? Certainly not. And in
getting every adjunct to it not only the color,
but the cost has been carefully considered.
The Frenchwoman is the queen of financiers,
HOW I'REN'CHMEN REGARD WOMEN.
The Frenchman is openly and honestly proud
of "the other woman." "Where an Englishman
gloats over his horses the Frenchman does over
his chire amie. That she should be the best
dressed, that her equipage should attract the
most attention as she drives around the lake,
and though she may love dress she does not i aud that she should he known as under his pro-
commit tho frightful extravagances which are !
credited to her. Those she leaves to the mem
bers of the demi-monde those ladles of whose .
existence she is always beautifully Ignorant, i
except when she is discussing their gowns with i
her most intimate friend.
THE CHIC 01" A FRENCH BONNET.
I could always sympathize with the woman
who sold her shoes that she might buy a French
bonnet, for if you have ever had any doubt on
the subject before you know now that milliners
are bom and not made, aud that they can only
come from this country of sunshine. An Eng
lish or an American bonnet is too often over
trimmed, but the French one seems to have been
thought out for you, and you begin to wonder if
the milliner had some sort of outlook into the
future, knew you were coming, and knew just
what you would want. Delightful chapcaxu of
soft crCpcj decorated with flowers or jets or gold,
are most in vogue; a typical one is of pale-yellow
crepe, without a crown, and just in front is a
golden butterfly poised asif for flight, and hav
ing eyes of tiny emeralds. I never knew butter
tection is his delight. Oddly enough, although
she doesn't say so, his wife occasionally takes
pride in this. No wonder everything Is quoted
as "fin de sitclc." A bright man told me the
other night, apropos of women all over the
world, that If he wanted a companion he should
seek an American, if a wife an Englishwoman,
and if a mother a Frenchwoman. Certainly
they are good mothers, and the love existing be
tween mother and child is invariably strong,
while the Frenchman's belief In the rights of a
mother is shown in the way laws are framed
with due regard for parental opinion.
AMERICANS IN PAWS.
Americans? Yes, they are here. The ones
seeking social recognition, others seeking whom
they may marry. It is not a particularly credit
able state of affairs, but the American met every
where is really hi search of ono of these two
i things. In London she is trying to buy her way
with money. In Paris she is trying to buy influ
ence with money. This Is a distinction with a
difference. She feels that in London she can
offer her dollars in the crudest way, stating
flies had eyes before, at least I didn't know just wlmt shc wishes and how much she will give for
wheie they carried them, and even now I don't ,
know whether these are properly placed. The
ties are of black velvet, and the bonnet Is worn i
very far foiward,60 that little of the bang shows.
THE 1HENCHW OMAN IN RCSINE1.
The Frenchwoman i6 the power in France in
the business as well as In the social world; lu the
middle classes she really dlrectb how the money
shall be invested, she looks after the in and out- j
going of the francs, and she is always deferen
tially treated by all the people hi her husband's
employ. In the higher classes she hears tho sc
cietsof the Bourse, or of the Ministry, and she
knows whose influence is worth gainlug to assist
her husband hi his schemes. She usually obtains
what she wishes. In the literary world she is
queen, and, differing in this from the English
woman of the same type, she is well dressed and
prides herself on being a good hostess.
FRENCH TOU)Eltb OK THE PEN.
Among this set is the writer knovn as "Gyp,"
really the Viscountess de Martcl, a most charm
iug and brilliant woman, while Madame Edmond
Adam is so well known that one can say nothing
of her except that with the years she seems to
have grown jounger and more attractive.
Frenchwomen write about subjects seldom
touched by those of other nations; they give
positive opinions about vital questions of tho
day, marriage, divorce, the education of chil
dren, the condition of the poor, and tho rights
of the working people all being discussed by
them and their opinions expressed in the bold
est way. Among them the younger Dumas is
specially praised, and when ono thinks of the
plays he hab written, those with a motive, that
are so little appreciated in the United States,
the reason for thoir admiration is easily under

the influence of a lady from Faubourg St. Gor

and the question of money glossed over until it
seems of the slightest moment.

is the laughing-stock of the fashionable set
wherever she maybe. Ono of the most consplc-
uous has almost an international leputation as a
beauty, and it did seem at flist as if her hard
work was to bo crooned with success, but alas!
the j ears have gone on, and she seems no nearer
the goal than she was in the beginning. With
time there has come a certain hardness, and her
object is so apparent that eligible men do like
the villain in the play, aud turn and flee.
A HIT 01' VMEUICAN WISDOM.
Tho greatest kindness that one can do for all
other American women when one i6 abioad is
to try and convince foieign mankind that there
are liundieds of lovely women on tho other side
who do not have to go out to seek husbands, but
who stay at home and refuse to accept many
who are offered, eligible though they may he.
It is natuial for them to judge all b, the one
type, and until you have seen it you caunot
imagine how entirely disgusting is the woman
with an oo like a wolf on some man and a de
termination expressed hi her compressed lips to
have her daughter introduced to him. No
wonder the great dread of the French mother
Is that her young daughter may bo liko this, for j
naturally she sees little of the other type.

which these gentlemen of the needle express

edifying. Provided, of course, the disagreeable
things are said about some other woman and not
about you. Monsieur the Most Important does
not hesitate to object to your having a short

the Englishwomen to a very large stomach, nor
of a Frenchwoman to an exttemoly full bust.

you say something about walking in it, ho con
ciliates you by politely murmuring, "Surely,

FRENCH IONOItANX'i: AllOL'T AMERICA.
Although this is the end of the nineteenth
century, and traveling arouud tho world is not
difficult, you will yet find people even in Paris
who think an Amciican Is first cousin to a red
Indian; whs believe that we never jt anything
good except when wo come here, and that wo
j live in a barbaious state all the rest of tho year;
i who have an idea that when wo want an after
