the king of Greece, were out for a walk
and went faftther than they had intended
dinner time was close at hand and thev
were tired. Just in the nick of time up
came a cart driven by an old peasant; they
nailed the man, asked him to tnve them
lift, and were soon seated upon some sacks
in tbe cart.
In reply to King Christian's inquiry, the
man said he was going to the castle of
Fredensburg to try and sell the two sacks
of carrots upon which they were sitting,
After a pause the king of Greece asked
the man. Do you know us?" to which t
peasant made answer: "How should If
have never seen you."
"Well," said King George, "I will tell
you, so that you may know in future. You
are driving the king of Denmark and the
king of Greece."
Hie peasant roared with laughter at
what he considered to lie a good joke and.
not to be behindhand, proclaimed himself
to be Frederick VI, who had been dead
The man laughed and chuckled at the
joke until the castle was in sight, the two
monarchs silting silent in the cart, but
when the soldiers on guard saluted the
kings ami paid the usual honors the scene
changed. The two monarchs, however.
thanked him cordially for the ride, and ten
minutes afterward the man was on his
way back, his two sacks of carrots hav
ing been purchased at a most unexpected
price. Harper's i oung People.
