When worki about tlihe holuse she rolls her sleeve showing arms whiter than would expected on a woman with a fa skin. For lthe last 12 years Mrs. Masse says the transformation has been i process, and as the change has bee completed for so long she is rather e>. plectitig the reverse performance to b gin before many months. She has a' yet noticedt none of the more marke sensation s explienced in forme changes. The only things that hav caused her to believe a transformatio is due are the appearance of the smai spots on her face' and the fact th. she has remained white longer tha usual this time. In making the first complete chang4" from black to white and then fro[I 'hit black as wll as in the see Mnd ronMapley change, Mrs. Massed says she noliced an itching sensation of the skin ht'fore the appearance of the spots, dark er light, as the case might be. As shi, tells it, the first white spots i)'gan to dot her colored skin in 1888, and in the cout:s' of two years she turned Isi-rfertly light. Dur ing the next two years a reverse pro cess followed. The next four years saw a similar change from black to white, then from white to black, and Mrs. Massey was still mor' astonished in 1896 when she began to turn white for the third time. Since that date she has bein turning color more slow ly, and the srtrptising thing is that tie hue has held for the exceptional number of years. Although she has not as yet noticed the accomptanying itching sensation, the appearance of the little spots on the face has given her ground for fear that the revers- process in the third transformation may not te' far off, Mrs. Massey is not worried about the matter, how'vter, as she is not affect ed physically bty th chant g of color.
