about two miles from Jalapa, in th
county, is turning white. That is 1

shade much resembling the ordinar
color of the caucasian cuticle.
Gilliam is a well-formed negi
about thirty years old, and who seen
to be in a healthy condition. He say
that the spots were first apparei
some five or six years ago and th;
they have increased in size ever sinc
until now they cover a large portic
of his face, hands, arms and ches

There are some colored people <
his community who think that ti
negro is really turning into a whi1
man, and still others hold to the b(

change in color is really due to a
extremely rare affection of the ski:
known to medical science as vitilag(
Very few cases are on record, an
the one in this county is perhaps a
perfect and highly developed an e3
ample as America has ever produce(
The disease is somewhat of the sam
nature as albinism, which preterna

and entire body, but there is some di
ference. The symptoms of the dii

themselves in a somewhat differer
manner. Oval or irregular milkis

on the skin at various points and the
