STKUMBLE HEAD LICHTHOUSE, Some lime it was announced in this paper that the iiiethien of Tiinity House inviting tenders for the construction ol a lightnouse at Strumble Head. The need fo/ a light at this point has been the subject of discussion among mariners and others lor years. The opening of the new route 10 Ire- land during the present summer ha: rendered its erection still more necessary, as the Great Western Railway's boats wiil be constantly passing between Goodwick and Rossuaie in all kmds of weather. we are able to state that the contract for building the new lighthouse has been given to a Devonshire man" Mr. Bob Jones, of Lyn ton, and the amount of the contract is over £ 27,000. This week workmen have arrived on the scene, and are already busy making a road to take the materials down over the fields to the edge of the cliff, where a bridge will have to be first constructed, of a. tem- porary nature, to span the narrow channel that divides Careg-Onen Island (wher the lighthouse will stand from the mainland. A permanent bridge will have to be made afterwards for access to the lighthouse. A lift, running on rails above, will be fixed by the contractor at the outset, and take ove • stones, mortar, etc. It will be some time, however, before the actual building com- mences, as besides these prepartions, the rocky point of the island will have "0 he levelled, and a considerable portion of it have to be removed. There will soon b< 40 men at work, and it is expected that many more will be employed before the sunimev is very far advanced. The materials will all come by rail to Goodwick, and thence by road. It is probable that a traction engine wili be used for the hauling. -+-
