comfort to my family. For general use as a toilet article it is all wo desire; it
keeps tho head clean of dandruff, tho 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 arc more or less liable. It is harmless In all its various uses. Tho old, tho
young, tho sick, and tho well will find it benellcial. Wo found it excellent in
"second summer" diseases. I have bought for my family and personal friends
more than a hundred bottles of tho BALM; all are ' more than pleased with its
powers and usefulness. Wishing you a well-merited prosperity, and the public
that blessing directly duo to the general introduction and use of your BALM
OF LIFE, I am gratefully yours,

ADDS TO OUR LONG LIST OF TESTIMONIALS
THE FOLLOWING LETTER:
Keokuk. Iowa, May SO. 1883.
It is with genuino gratitude I bear testimony to tho efficacy of COOK'S
BALM OF LIFE. Besides being n 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 1 could tlnd no remedy until
I called upon Dr. Dexter, of Washington, D. C, who told mo that the best medi
cine for that symptom, and ono ho 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 ray stomach was overcome, and
now, after five years and having had no recurrence of the trouble, I feel safo
in saying that tho BALM CURED ME, for it is tho first and only thing that
gavo mo 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 unfortunato when I am without it. Hoping that
others may be as much benefited by its use as I hnvo been, I am sincerely
yours, HELEN McCRARY.
