In general, one path runs parallel to the front, sometimes upon the front flue, but more generally beside it; at other times, as in peach-houses, it passes near the back wall, or through the middle of the house. In pineries and houses with pits, it generally surrounds these; and in greenhouses it is commonly confined to a course parallel to the front and ends.
