LONELIEST OF LIGHTHOUSES.
Tillamook Rock, on the Coast of Ore
gon, nnd Its Keeper.
I'rom tho Tcpcka (Kan.) Capital.
Tho highest point used by the llght
houso department of tho United States
government us a signal station Is it
precipitous rock in the northwestern
part of Oregon called Tillamook ltock.
Its great height and perilous situation
lend to make tho rock the most avoid
ed ono o tho government list, and it
is only after a long and careful search
that men are found who are willing to
go as keepers to tho station.
Tillamook ltock light station is in the
thirteenth lighthouse district, which
Includes the coast and rivers of Ore
gon, Washington and Alaska. It Is sit
uated in tho midst of the surging Pa
cific, with ninety feet depth of water
on all sides, at the gieat storm center
off Tillamook Head.
It Is eighteen miles south of the en
trance to the Columbia river, and one
mile southwest by half a mile west
from Tillamook Head, on the Oregon
coast. The water near Tillamook has
such a strong and uncertain current
that vessels unacquainted with tho
coast are warned not to attempt the
passage. Tho rock, which has a sum
mit of eighty feet above the sea level,
Is an irregular column of basalt, ap
parently separated from Tillamook
Head, on the mainland, by untold cen
turies of erosion prior to the days when
the sea was receding on the Pacific and
encroaching upon the land on the At
lantic. The reason for the dlfllculty in secur
ing keepers for Tillamook Is said to be
that a man not only risks his life In ac
cepting the position, but his reason. At
present a keeper and four assistants
are provided for the double purpose of
dividing the watches and mitigating
the awful isolation that tends toward
uiibeatlng the same face (of a man, of
course,) day in and day out for months
and years, amid the same wild scene
and in the same narrow treadmill of
labor, is irritating. It begets dislike
by its very annoyance of monotony. It
is so different when the fuce is that of
a woman a wife.
But the wife is not permitted to live
there. The keeper and his assistants
are cut off from all social ties. Tho
wild waste of water and fierce storms
of Tillamook forbid a woman's residing
on the rock.
Upon the east side Tillamook's sum
mit is forty feet wide, narrowing to Its
west bide for a distance of sixty feet,
and from that point' extending forty
feet further In a. sharp and abrupt
ledge, where It is only forty feet in
width. The rock is precipitous on all
sides, except the east, where it slopes
up at an angle of twenty degrees. Tho
summit, except the sharp ledge on the
west side, is inclosed all around its
ledge by a strong iron ratling. The
dwelling house Is in the center of the
summit. It faces to the east. It is a
stone and cement structure, held down
by great iion bolls. The stone tower
rests on the rock and shoots up from
the center of the dwelling. The luclos
ure for this wild sea-girt house con
tains snmc 7,000 square feet, or less
Hum two acres in area. The focal
plate of the liirht is l::ti fyet above sea
level. Yet this Pacilic ocean, when In
its angriest mood, outlines dashes its
waves against the plate glass inclosing
thu light and hurls gigantic! rocks high
above and drops them upon the homo
of those faithful but helpless guardians
of the storm-tossed mariner.
The keeper's dwelling is a bquare,
one-shiry building of stone for outer
walls, and brick, Iron and wood for In
terior, with rectangular extension for
the duplicate siren apparatus. The
light was first shown on February l,
ISM, the building having been begun
October si, 1S7II, nnd romploti-d under
clreuniHianees of tlio gi cutest peril,

pros'nll on an Ideal Thanksgiving day,
that is to say there was no snow and
the mercury was not way down In thu
tube. Nevertheless, the day was ob
served with something of the usual
spirit. Nearly all of the shops, minus),

There were the general union chtlich

temple of the Penn Avenue Baptist
church tho young people of the con
gregation wore tendered a most de
lightful reception by tho pastor, Rev.
Robert F. Y. Pierce, D. D., assisted
by his wife and a number of the Sttii
dnj' school teachers.
The room was tastefully decorated
with bunting and American and Cu
ban tlags. The young people were
all there from the tiny prhna-y tola
to the young men nnd women, The
exercises wore opened with prayer by
Dr. Pierce. Then the children formed

Comparative Advantage of the Law,
Medicine and the Clergy.
110111 the Medical ItCLord.
The law Is probably the most prolit
able of the so-called learned prol'es-hlons-.
There are more and larger
prizes to be gained by an acute and
eloquent disciple of the legal art than
arc open lo the medical man or the
minister. In this country and Great
Britain the Incomes of the foremost
advocates and of attorneys In lucrative
practice for the most part overshadow
the yearly earnings of the best known
physicians and surgonns, and to a still
greu(er extent those of our spiritual
advisers. Occasionally one hears of
very large fortunes being left by prom
inent doctors Sir William Gull, Sir
Andrew Clurke, Dr. Pepper and Sir
AVilliam .Tenner are cases in point
but tlie.se ate exceptions, and sums
accumulated by medical men cannot
be computed either In number or
magnitude to the colossal amounts
uinnssod by members of the legal fra
ternity. When, however, itho average
Incomes of these three classes of the
community are considered their le
latlvo position in Groat Rrltain and
the United States will be found to
differ. Viewed thus, in tho t'nited
Kingdom the cleargynian is aL the top
of the list, the lawyer second and
the" doctor last; while here the lawyer
or doctor gets a larger bhare of thu
"loaves anil llshcs" and the minister
has to be content with the crumbs.
The average) income of a physician
In largo cltlca on this continent iimv
bii plueed at $:',00O, in tho smaller
towns at $l,r.ui), and In thu rural ills
trlcls at $l,2fig. Two or three New
Yotk physicians are bald to make over
Sioo.mui a year, live or six about $10,000,
but the average Income, although
raihcr higher than In Chicago and in
other American large cities, docs not
greatly exceed .f-'.OOO yearly. The min
ister averages In tho city perhaps iu.
000, und Iu tho country certainly not
more than .rM)0 yearly.
Rome people piosper by letting
past experiences lead them
tluough present dilllcultles.
Hotuohow, they discover tho folly
of frivolous spending, and
simply ciuit. How strange! tlml
inoiD don't see the point.

As regards living expenses both the
lawyer and minister have an advant
age over their professional brother.
In New York, for example, oflice ac
commodation .suitable to a physician
is very dear, in a good neighborhood
costing not less than $70 or $S0 a month,
which, with board and lodging und
other necessary disbursements, will
repie.sent a. stun of Sl-0 monthly, a
biitllciently weighty burden to bear.
The young minister has no rent to
pay, while the legal neophyte can regu
late his outlay hi this respect according
to tho length of his purse.
Nevertheless the lot of tho medical
beginner, compared with that of tt
pastor In a like situation, has Its com
pensations. He is at least more or
lehs independent. The minister, on tho
contrary, Is as a rule permitted to oxer
clso his own will but to a limited de
gree, and often is doomed to go through
a lifetime of toll, subservient to tho
caprices of censorious elders and dea
cons, . An excellent description of the
Rials of an American country minister,
und 'tho various unpleasantnesses with
which ho has to contend tit thu hands
of Ills congregation, Is given In tho
"Damnation of Therein Ware," tho best
novel written by the Into Harold Fred

When all is said that can, bo ateid
tho Hist few years of medical practice
arc years of arduous c.Tjtt. full of dis
illusionment and disappointment. The
late Sir Andrew Clarke told Dr. Osier:
"From the vantage Kiound of 111010

say that. I have striven ten years fop
board, leu years for bienet and butter
and twenty years for cake and tile,"
