ROCK OF AGES LIGHT.
Fine Lighthouse to Be Erected on Lake
George II. Banks of Houghton, Mich.,
United States junior engineer In
charge of the Portage lake waterways.
has been advised by the United States
lighthouse board that Walter Byers,
engineer of construction, will arrive in
Houghton on May 15 to make prepara
tions for the construction of the Rock
of Ages light, for which an appropria
tion was made at the last session of
congress, says the Detroit Free Press.
The light Is to be located on the Rock
of Ages, the projecting portion of a
dangerous reef about three miles west
of Isle Royale. This rock has been a
menace to Lake Superior navigation
ever since the first craft sailed the wa
ter. It has been somewhat out of the
beaten path of ships, but it has always
been argued that were it guarded by a
light It would serve to mark a con
venient course on the run from Duluth
to Houghton or Whlteflsh. The gov
ernment has finally decided to erect
It will require the entire summer to
complete the work, as the rock is in
the open lake, exposed to every wind
that blows, and it will be possible to
work only in calm weather. Mr. Byers
has asked Engineer Banks to secure
for him a company of skilled mechan
ics for the work, so that his arrange
ments in llougnton may not occupy
much time. The lighthouse when erect
ed will be one of the finest ou the
great lakes. It Is said that the lamp
Itself will cost $ir.OO0. exclusive of the
building. The lamp is of French make.
