*' What uuueenoa! FrintwaHin wbocan

The king fared worm at the hand* of
the third, who waa the moat beautiful
and the moat charming.
She gave tbe king no opportunity to
aak bia qaeation. hot took thinga into
her own banda and demanded whether
he knew how to play an the jew'eharp,
and when ha Mid he did not ehe rent
him away. Ha pleaeed her very tanch,
ahe admitted, hut «he waa ao extrava
gantly fond of the music of the jew'a
harp that abe would never marry a man
that could not play it.
The king and his minister returned
home, and a* they alighted from their
carriage tbe king said:
“Ketkiug baa come of all tbia!”
“Nothing, your majesty," said tbe
“What shall I do?” aigbed tbe king.
"1 most have a wife.”
“if you would only give up tbe ginger
nutß.” ventured the minister timidly.
“For tbe good of my people I will I”
exclaimed tbe noble king, and he re
aolved to murry tbe priuceae whom be
had first nought.
“She is the one who knows how to
bake almond cakes,” be said. “Go and
ask her if sbe will he my wife. ”
The minister went, returned the next
day, and said she was no longer in the
matrimonial market, for sbe bad mar
ried tbe king of the Gaud of Gapers.
“Then go to tbe second princess, ”
said tbe king. Again tbe minister re
turned without having ac ompiished
anything, for this princess had died.
Then tbe king thought a long time.
He absolutely must have a wife, so be
ordered tbe minister to go to tbe third
princess and aee if sbe bad changed her
mind. The minister obeyed, though he
did it unwillingly, for his wife assured
him that his errand was a useless one.
The king anxiously awaited his re
turn. His mind was on her question
concerning the jew’a harp, and the re
membranes of it was most annoying.
The third princess received the min
ister very cordially. Sbe said she had
changed her mind about marrying a
man who oould play tbe jew’s harp.
“Dreams are but vain and empty
things, especially those of youth. ”
She realized that her wish could not
be fulfilled, and as the king pleased
her she had decided to marry him.

Prior to the late Insurance war in
Atlanta, tbe Atlanta Home requested
tbe Southeastern Tariff Association to
reduce It* rates on dwellings, but the
request was declined. General ood lo

at that time that Atlanta's rates were
unreasonably high and that the
amount of premiums collected was out
of proportion to the losses on this
class of property.
Whatever tbe motive was fo* the re

While no figures were obtainable
yesterday, It Is a matter of general )n
--formafen that Atlanta loses very few
dwellings. Atlanta’s fire department,
