While the stairways in this houare con

pose of making this understood I will say
that one might go up the stairway from tlie
front hall to the landing some eight steps
above and from thence down into the kitchen,
or he can turn light face and go on the land
ing to the second floor. This part of the stairs
is uoed by the people coming up from the
kitchen as well as by those from the front
liall. However, the kitchen stairway is se;
arated from the landing by a door. There
is, as well, a door at the foot of this kitchen
stairway. In coming down stairs from above
one may turn to the right, open a door and
go on down into the kitchen, or he may turn
to the left and go down the front stairway
into the liall.
