Passing of Old Houses.
Riders and walkers through the New
England countryside and villages learn
to look for the venerable houses, mnny
of them centenarians twice over, which
not only distinguish Hits region, but fit
into its landscapes with a suitability
which newer buildings somehow lack.
As this interest grows the observer be
gins to notice that they une all too rap
idly disappearing to give place to mod
ern houses which are certainly no im
provement in workmanship and archi
tectural design, and not necessarily su
perior in comfort anil convenience if
the old houses are properly handled.
In losing these ancient buildings we
are losing not only parcels of history.
We are losing quite as much a digni
fied and fitting style of domestic archi
tecture which is all the more effective
