A LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER'S LIFE. The Perilous Duty of Caring: for a Uea eo:i LightA Stormy sijjlit. TIi'1 duty of a. keeper of one of these great beacon lights is not arduous, but sometimes it is attended with consider able danger. Owing to the great height of the tower, and the peculiarly exposed , conation, there is always the chance of its Leiag destroyed by a fierce hurricane of wind and rain. During a dark, stormy nielit in April, 18o l, the Minot's Ledge lighthouse, near Boston, was thus de ftroyed by the combined action of wind, raia and the heavy sea. The lighthouse was a skeleton iron structure, situated oil a ledge of rock, which at low water is entirely bare, but at high' tide several feet of water covers it. At an unknown hour of the night the iron posts snapped in two and the lighthouse toppled over into the restless sea. The keejM'r's house on the iron towers is usually situated near the top of the lighthouse, just under the great revolv ing lamp. A strong platform is con structed on the top series of braces and an octagonal structure of wood then built, perforated on each side by window holes. This small structure acts as a storehouse for the oil afid other appara tus connected with the lighthouse and as a living place for the keeper. It is made as small as practicable so as to oiler the least amount of resistance to the wind. The small cupola alove this building, where the great reflector is situated, is Teached by a winding iron staircase. To keep the lamp in good condition for per forming its proper work requires clean ing every day. The keeier, in addition to trimming the wicks and replenishing the vessel with oil each morning, has to oil the revolving apparatus and see that the glass globe and reflector are clean and clear of smoke. Before darkness attics over the land the lamp must then w lighted and the machinery set in (ration. If it is an exceptionally stormy night the great illuminating apparatus must be constantly watched, lest some accident should extinguish the light. The glass lobe is, of course, very thick and strengthened by heavy brass braces; but even with this precaution many incidents are known where the glass panels have wen blown in bv the force of the wind and hail, and tl'ie light extinguished at once. The experiences of a keeper on a tark stormy night are not always agree able. The wind blowing up from some rough quarter of the globe, sweeps across the sea with alarming rapidity, lashing the water into light fo'ivm, and" moaning fitfully- about the tall tower. At a height tf 100 feet from the surface of the sea it attains a speed equal to that of a small hurricane, and, when it strikes the glass gloue of the lighthouse, it whistles in and out among the iron braces as though it jyould tear them from their sockets. If the wind is accompanied by rain and hail thewildness of the scene is increased, -i he glass is thick and strong enough usu ally to resist the force of the frozen drops of water; but the noise made by the con stant pattering of the descending hail on it is louder than if it were falling upon sprue hard metal or stone. At such a nme it would be a dangerous risk to venture out on the platform surround ing the big light, even though clinging to xne stout iron railing for support. As the "mhouses are arranged at the present uay, there is no need of the keeper at tempting such a feat, as the lamp and all prtammg to lt can be reached from the wade. . Y. Mail and Express.
