A NAMELESS CASE.,
My case lias been a very curious one for
about thirteen years. At Intervals of about
ono week I would be attacked with spells or
severe and most excruclnting pain, always
commencing In the region ot my kidneys.
The pain would then go upwards and atl'oct
my body and head, and seemed to penotrale
my very eye-bulls, croatlng the most intense
sullering, lasting about eight hours each
X restored to all kinds ol medicine with

case, but none relief. I finally used B. B. B.
as on experiment, and to my uttor astonish
ment all pain and suffering vanished after
using three dosos. To the present tlmo I
have nscd three bottles, and not a pain bus
ever returned. I do not know what was
the matter, noither could mypbystclunnume

I am 85. Broke down twelve years ago,
and have not been able to work since. Have
lost proper action of my hips and legs. For

years have been uuiupttfuUvuly blind.

of different schools without a cure. 1 have
taken five bottles of U. B. B. (mado at At

gradually healing. Inflamation abont'my

like a boy again feel good. My strength
