so many centuries have withstood the fierce

the scorching rays of the summer sun.
1 he endurance of the structure is due in
no small degree to the peculiar manner in
which the timbers were placed. That
method of building is called in Norway

Urutef, on the Lyster Ijord, Lidsborg,

Haukl Fjeld, and a few others. In many
ways the most interesting of these are the

mean that the others are uninteresting
there are many points of great interest
Lorn for a stavekirke is large, though J
not so extensive as Hitterdal. It presents
the sane curiously raised roofs, and is of
the dai k red brown color usually met with
in the churches. It consists of a nave,
transept and chancel. At the east end is
that cirious beehivelike roof, somewhat
the satie in shape as the beautiful east ena
of Trondhjem cathedral, only, of course,
very different in material and size. The
doors are ornamented with the character
istic carving of interlaced work and drag
ons' heads, which is always to oe iouna in
these stavekirkes. .
