It describes the different Dr. Clcndenlng will answer questions of general Interest only, and then only through his column. varieties of the blush--tho true blush, tho blush of feeling, the false blush, the deceptive or legal '(sic) blush, the blush or Bush of rage, etc. All of them arc Involuntary but distinctly associated with mental states, and for the .comfort of those who arc afflicted to their embarrassment with this habit, let me quote the author who says, "This clearly proves my former assertions that the blush · Is evidently a result of reason, and cannot take .place "without Its impulse, else why Is the congenital Idiot Incapable of exhibiting this phenomenon?"

Time Is the most reliable cure, and you may be sorry some time that hardening process has cured your blushing.
