For the last two months the Sun has been run as a corporation, having received a char ter at Dover,- and Mr. Congdon's name as sole owner was removed from the head of the paper. Sunday edition of the Sun i discontinued and Mr. George W. Roberts will assume the editorship of the paper, which will make its appearance under his management Monday next. The Sun has not been a success, financially. Quite a breeze has been kicked up in Chester by the charge that $500 was paid to several of the Councilmen of that city, to get their "influence" to pass a contract for paving Edgemont Avenue with vit rifled brick ot a specified manufac ture. The rumor will be investiga s ted aud the guilty ones shown up. The contractor, William E. Reilly, said he had not paid one dollar to receive the work and that it was a lie out of the whole cloth. Said one of our police officers: "The Philadelphia police, on the principle streets of that village are a fine looking body of men, but when it comes to running, they would not be one,two or three with the men on our force. They are all right for physical beauty, but not much good for active, hustling pa trol work.

CHAPTER III The outline of Tampique bay stood out clearly in bright moonshine, and the sea down the path of the moon's rays showed a canal of silver cut through rolling fields of purple. The green painted bark was heading into the bay on the port tack, and at moor ings before the town in the curve of the shore the grotesque spars of a mod ern warship showed in black silhouette against the moonbeams. A slate colored naphtha launch was sliding out over the swells toward the bark. Captain Kettle came up from below and watch ed the naphtha launch with throbbing interest. A Jacob's ladder was thrown over the side. The slate colored launch swept np and emitted—a woman. Captain Kettle started and went down into the waist to meet her. A minute later he wondering whether he dreamed or whether he was really walking his quar ter deck in company with Donna Clo tilde la Touche. But meanwhile the bark held steadily along her course. "I must beseech you, miss, to go back from where you came," said Ket tle. "You must trust me to carry out this business without your supervi sion." "Is your method very dangerous?" she asked. "I couldn't recommend it to any in surance company, " eaid Kettle thought fully. "Tell me your eclieme." Kettle did so in some 40 words. He was pithy, and Donna Clotilde was cool. Sbe heard him without change of color. "Ah," she said, "I think you will do itl" "You will know one way or another within an hour from now, miss. But I must ask you to take your launch to a distance. As I tell you, I have made all my own boats so that they won't swim, but if your little craft was handy would jump overboard and risk the sharks and try to reach her in spite of all I could do to stop them. They won't be anxious to fight that Cancelario when the time comes if there's any way of wriggling out of it." my VYon are quite right, captain; the launch must go, only I do not. I must bo your guest here till you can put on tho Cancelario." Captain Kettle frowned. "What's coming is no job for a woman to be in at, miss." "You must leave opinion about that. You see, we differ upon what a woman ehould do, cap tain. You say a woman should not be president of a republic; you think a woman should not ben sharer in a fight. going to show you how a woman can be both." She leaned her shoulders over the rail and hailed the naphtha launch with a sharp command. A man in the bows cast off the line with which to my own 1 it towed, the and set the engines a-going* and, like a sftin gray ghost, the launch slid quiet ly away into the gloom. "You see," she said, "I'm bound to stay with yon Dow." And she looked upon him with a burning glance. But Kettle replied coldly : "You my owner, miss, and cau do as wish. It is not for me now to say that you are foolish. Do I understand you still wish me to carry out my original aft put over his tiller you plan?' "Yes," sbe said curtly. "Very well, miss; then we shall be aboard of that war steamer in less than 15 minutes." He bade bis second mate call aft tho crew, but instead of re maining to meet them lie took a keen glance at the bark's canvas, another at her wake, another at the moored cruiser ahead, and then, after peering thought fully at the clouds that sailed in the sky, ho went to the companionwny and dived below. Tho stood at the break of the quarter deck waiting for him. And in the meanwhile they feasted their eyes on Donna Clo tilde la Touche. Presently Captain Kettle returned to deck, HggreBsivo and cheerful, and faced witli hands in his jacket pock ets. Each pocket bulged with something heavy, and the men, who by this time had come to understand Captain Ket tle's ways, began to grow quiet aud trooped aft and tho nervous. "Now, my lads," said he, "I told you when yon shipped aboard this lav ender box in Callao that she was merely . a ferry to carry you to a fine 'var j steamer which was lying elsewhere, j Well, there s the steamer just off the 1 starboard bow yonder.

And you can't reqnire any telling to know there are too many sharks about to mako a swim healthy exercise. " The men began to rustle and talk. "Now, don't spoil your only chance,' said Kettle, "by singing out. If on the cruiser yonder they think there's any thing wrong, they'll run out n gun or two and blow ns ont of the water be fore we can come near them.

Then jump on board, knock ev erybody yon the rest below." The men crept away, shaking, and Captain Kettle himself took wheel and appeared to drowse over it. He gave her half a spoke at a time, and by invisible degrees the bark fell off till she headed dead on for the cruiser. Save for the faint creaking of her gear no sound came from her, and she slunk on through the night like some patched and tattered phantom. Far down in her lazaretto the glowing end of the fuse crept nearer to the powder barrels, and in imagination every mind on board was following its race. Nearer and nearer ehe drew to the Cancelario and ever nearer. The wait ing men felt aa though the hearts of them would leap from their breasts. Two of them fainted. Then came a bail from the cruiser : "Bark ahoy I Are you all asleep there f" Captain Kettle drowsed on over the wheel. Dcnna Clotilde, from the shad ow of the house, could see him nodding hke a man in a deep sleep. "Carrajo, you bark there I Pot down your helm. You'll be aboard of a minutel" Kettle made no reply. His hands sawed automatically at the spokes, and the glow from the binnacle full upon close shut eyes. It was a fine bit of act ing. over the side and keep the in The Chileans shouted, but they could not prevent the collision, and when it came there broke ont a yell as though the gates of the pit had been suddenly unlocked.

As they clambered up the cruis er's side and spread about her decka 111 provided with weapons though they might be, the Chileans were scarcely better armed. A sentry squibbed off his rifle, hut that was the only shot fired. Knives did tho greater part of the work, knives and belaying pins and whatever else came to hand.

Then from behind them came the roar of plosion and the spurt of dazzling light, and the men shuddered to think of what they had so narrowly missed. Donna Clotilde went on to the upper bridge and took Captain Kettle by tne hand. "My friend," said she, "I shall never forget this." earning ray pay," said Kettlo. "Pah I" she said.
