Dear Sir: Your BALM OF LIFE has become a household necessity and
comfort to my family. For general use as a toilet articlo it is all wo desire; it
keeps tho 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. Tho old, tho
young, tho sick, and tho well will find it beneficial. 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 aro moro than pleased with its
powers and usefulness. Wishing you a well-merited prosperity, and tho public
that blessing directly duo 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 that I must commend it to tho public.

THE FOLLOWING LETTER:
Keokuk, Iowa, May 30. 1883.
It is with genuine gratitudo I bear testimony to tho efficacy of COOK'S
BALM OF LIFE. Besides being a groat sufferer ,wlth 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. Doxtor, of Washington, D. C, who told mo 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 tho con- .
tents of tho bottlo that particular condition of my stomach was overcome, and
now, after flvo years and having had no recurrence of the troubled feel safe
in saying that tho BALM CURED ME, for it is tho first and only thing that
gave mo relief. I havo by its uso learned its valuo 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 bo as much benefited by its use as I havo been, I am sincerely
yours. HELEN McCRARY.
