At intervals of about one week I would be attacked with spells of severe and most excruci ating pain, always commencing in the re gion of my kidneys. The pain won Id then go upwards and affect my body and head, and seemed to penetrate my very eye-balls, creating the most intense suf ferlng. lasting about eight hous each I resorted to all kinds of medicine without benefit. Several doctors treated my ease, but none gave relief. I finally used B. B. B. as an experiment, and to my utter astonishment all pain and suf fering vanished after using three dosos. To the present time I have used three bottles, and not a pain has ever return ed. I do not know what was the mat ter, neither could my physician name the complaint. The B. B. B. actd finely and powerfully upon my kidneys, my appetite has been splendid and my con stitution built up rapidly. K. THOMAS, Constitution, Oa., May 6, 1886. UNIMPEACHEDINTEG -ilTY. I am 55.

The year of our Lord 188G has passed away. All hail to it3 6iiccessor, 1S871 The record here presented has become history. Its careful perusal will show that the departed twelvemonth will count for more than naught whin the larger records, that are possible only after the lapse of time, are made up. Then the significance of many things now ac counted trivial will be apparent. Then many circumstances now thought impor tant will bo found to bo of small moment. The year was a notable one in that the lives of many men of mark went out during its reign. The labor movement developed in new and unlooked for directions. The elections of November were full of surprises for men of all parties. Across sea, England, after a long period of indecision, finally made up her mind in regard to the Irish Question, and in December adopted strong coercive measures. Upon the continent of Europe there was a ' continual agitation - during the whole year, which reached the maximum when "Alexander was deposed from Bul garia's throne. Peace 6till prevails, but war would not at any time be unex pected. , ' Disasters followed each other fclosely the whole world . over. The earthquakes in the Sandwich Islands, in Spain and in America; and storms of unilsnal violence at sea, were especially noteworthy.
