Evidently Inv subject was proud of the distinction she enjoyed and the attention vouchsafed her. Quite suddenly, however, this simple Bavage,' untaught as she was and innocent of the laws of reticence and prudiBhness, became convulsed with shame, covered her eyeB with ber handB, and valiantly resisted evelry attempt to make her Btaud forward aB before. At the Bame time I noticed that the hue of her -features changed, the brown of her face - i 'becoming darker and deeper than before, a - phenomenon easily explained by the tact of the' blood rising into her head. Had. she, been a brown girl, we would have said that ; ebe blushed. At all event?, the physiological procesB was the same as'that which forces us to blush.' ? ? _
