Tho porch is a ery elegant fentuio of this

Ikj seen, Is to 0110 side of tho entrance, thus 110

obstructs tho light to a Hue with tho top of
the columns of the other part of tho perch.
There is another iolut about this oien ga
bio which can only make itself apparent from
experience. That is. there Is a feeling ideas
mitly in contrast with the doprevdng effect
winch comes from sitting under tho low roof
of tho ordinary form of isirch. One can sit
under this gable, look up nnd see a largo ex
pniiso of sky above him; otherwise, thero Is
little more than the horizon to be wen A
