and then into hollows, to take off from the heaviness of the mass. Meie are, however, situations where the convex lon should be preferred. A hollow just below the brow of a hill reduces it to a narrow ridge, which has a poor neacre appearance; and an abrupt full will neve. seem to join wit a concave forn iuuediately above it; a sharp edilse divides ther; and to connect then, that edge must be l'oundei, or at least falttened; which is, in fact, to interpose a convex or a level.
