On the Malay Peninsula a few closed privies are seen among the natives. By those living over the water a definite supported on poles is built. This is somewhat removed from the house, a little bridge running to it, as shown in the figure. The floor of the convenience is constructed of a few boards with wide interspaces between. On dry land a hole is excavated and some times an earthen jar is bedded in the ground, over which a few boards are placed.
