Most people are familiar with the uso of disinfectants In their ordinary sense all of whlh aro unpleasantly associated with dloagrceablo odors, on which nro depended to kill tho contagion (which disinfectants must ot necessity bo of a mora or less clangorous character) and must bo used for this purposo and for no other, and In conscqucnco kept from children and carolcss handling. Thcro Is, however, within tho reach of nil our read era a simple, Bafo and economical article that will not only answer, for every disinfecting purpose but can also bo used for a multltudo of domestic cleansing and purifying purposes Ilorax. Horax is a pure, white harmless powder coming direct from Nature's laboratory; In fact Dornx has often been called "Naturo's Cleanser and Disinfectant." Two tablcapoonfuls of Ilorax In a pailful of hot water poured down tho grease-chokepipes of n sink, or flushed through a disease-ladedrain, cleanses and purifies It, leaving It clean and sweet.

Kitchen and eating utensils, usod during Illness will bo kept from all possibility of contagion If Dorax la used when washing them.

Curiously enough, this Is a phnso of tho Internal economy ot tho bcchlvo which appears to havo escaped observation. "In tho nrltlsh Isles," says the American, "no poisonous honoy Is collected. If It exists tho bees have learnod to avoid It. Probably there Is none, aa tho honoy from at least one dangerous plant, the deadly nightshade, Is harmless. Ivy honoy would bo tho most suspicious ot any gathered on a largo scale, and It only exerts, so far an observation goes, a slightly laxative effect on tho dlgestlvo organs. Although In this country no poisonous honey Is known, It Is met with In other places, notably In Asiatic Turkey. It was In this region that1 Xenophon's soldiers wcro poisoned 3,300 years ago by honey from tho Azclla pontlca, a plant which still flourishes" In Armenia, Somo centuries lator a Roman army Buffered similarly, but less severely, there being no deaths. "Tho precaution of compelling the cook to cat a portion Of every dish, which Is tho usual safeguard ot despotic rulers, of tho still more primitive plan of giving the first helping to a little dog, can be eluded by a clever f ot a Dorgla by having only bird or pastry poisoned. In a wasp's nest each forager on returning proceeds directly to tho queen and offers refreshment Consequently the queen is sometimes destroyed by slowly acting poison. Further as regards wasps, It Is observed that when any larvao not recently fed pcrcelvo the queen receiving food they become restless. If nearly grown they wag their heads in a suggcstlvo way, which plainly conveys a demand for a share. Each forager after feeding the queen gives the balance ot his load dlroct to tho nurses. "In the caso ot the honoybce on possiblo reason why no virulently poisonous honey reaches the hire may bo that the Insect foolish enough to collect any would probably die, as the honey-sacIs really a stomach In which a preliminary digestive process proceeds. This is proved by tho polarlscopo, which shows that, while the nectar of the flowers is puro cane sugar, or lovulose, tho substance In the hlvo cells Is saccharlmetrlcally half dextrose and half cano sugar. Dextrose Is' Invert sugar, a coarse variety of which Is tho glucoio of commerce. Forager bees returning to the beehive place the half digested product known as honey In their storeroom with other honey. This mixing would attenuating a of havo the effect poisoned load should such bo brought Into the hive. "Foraging bees never feed tho queen or ""young - larvae, but they give a mouthful or two to drones in passing. Just before sealing for the metamorphosis workers and drones are fed with honey mixed with pollen. Not so tho young queens who only get a fur-thsupply ot the redlgested milky substance known as chyle, which Is the sustenance ot all larvae Indiscriminately during: the first three days of their existence. During tho chrysalis stage there is no foedlng. It Is tho business of a gang, distinct tor the time being, to cator for the queen and young. They bring tho food from tho stores and submit it to tho dlgestlvo process referred to, after which It Is regurgitated to supply the needs of tho queen and young larvae. The attendants aro numerous, and each supplies only a minute quantity. Tho queen bco Is so constituted that her digestive system Is capablo of assimilating only tho prepared food of chylo. a She will die in a fow hours on comb containing honey, although kept at tho temperature of the hive. "Thus it would appear that tho safeguards are: First, a bee collecting poisonous honoy would probably die before reaching tho hlvo; second, that It ono succeeded In depositing poisoned honey, tho clrcumstanco that It did so would prove tho poison to be not virulent, and Its mixture with other honoy In tho storeroom would still further attenuato tho poison and render It harmless. This Is tho stage at which tho product becomes human food. It has, as statod abo7e, occurred that poisoned honey has passed both these lines of defenso; third, that should the honey be still deleterious tho alimentary attendants ot tho queen would first suffer, and only those bringing wholesome food would reach her, as a struggle for tho privilege ot feeding her majesty Is continually In progress; fourth, that should the tores pass tho three safeguards before mentioned there Is still another, vis., that each one ot the queen's attendants feeds her only for a' second at a time, and thus she would never Set a sufficient quantity to affect her seriously. It Is apparent, therefore, that tho queen Is abundantly protect-s- d from being fed with poisonous ono-halk Farmers and Merchants Bank .Clinton Street, Hickman, Kentucky. , ....ABSOLUTE SAFETY IS THE BASIS....

He is subject, of course, to the regular election in Hickman from this year's crop. Because Judge Naylor handed out a few cards which failed to state that he was running for "subject to the action of the Democratic primary," it has caused some folks to think he might run independent, although all of his announcements read otherwise. This was a mistake on the part of the Courier in leaving a line off his cards, and was not discovered until the Judge had used a part of them.

Tbe grinding surface of tbe stone la more apt to be concave than It Is to have an even face, or slightly beveled surface.

Tho Gemini was synonymous with cou rage and loyalty and firmness. It had no placo for the weakling. Tho faithfulness of n member novcr could be doubted, not oven by tho bitterest rivals. Tho constitution of the Gemini to the never had been subjected slightest change or amendment from the time of Its framing by Rodney Oraves and tho six other young men who, with him, composed the original cluster. Safe In tho vault of the eham ber It rested, being disturbed only onco a year I.aws essential to the purpose of this tale were as follows: "A possible person must havo been born under tho full Influence of tho sign of Gemini ot tho zodiac that Is, between May 2C and June SI. His fa tber must havo been born under some Influence of this sign that Is. between May 20 and June 21. His mother must havo been born under tho full Influ enco of the sign of Aquarius that Is. between January 20 and February 10. . . Should tho possible candidates exceed the number of persons allowed by law tho active persons shall exer clso their discretion and best Judg moot In selecting their successors In activity." "At the beginning of their senior year the persons shall elect one of their number to tho office of supreme person, and the Incumbent of that of' flco shall bo tho only ono with au thortty. His word shall bo law; none shall question It; none shall deny Its majesty." Tho foremost purpose of tho Gemini was to test tho strength and loyalty of Its members. In vlow of this, no student could become n person with out consent and sanction of parent or guardian, and none could be Invited to wear tho Pin of tho Twins without first being apprised of the possibilities of membership. Every member was expected to perform any mission that might bo determined upon to test his strength and loyalty. It was a rule that at tho end of ono school year the supremo porson should preparo tho basis of tests to which tho per sons of the following year should be put. Tho persons congregated at such times In the total darkness ot tho chamber and received their "test" In structlons. These Instructions were placed In sealed envelopes, uniform In size and shape, and then Into a cloth bag (he black bag ot destiny from which they were drawn by tho mem bers In order of their Initiation. For instance, tho person first ordained mado tho Initial selection; tho noxt to put on tho Pin of tho Twins was tho second to take out on envelope, and so on down to the seventh person. The law ordained that tho Instructions should not be mado known to others than tho invldlvunl holders until they had been carried out In their entirety. This was tho last article as drawn up by Rodney Graves and tho others who formed tho original cluster; "Tho persons shall bo placed wholly upon their honor nt all times, They shall bo granted four and twenty hours In which to decide whether or not to carry out the Instructions, making known their decisions within that tlmo to the supreme person. Should a person decline to follow tho Instructions, It shall bo tho unalterable duty of the supremo person to divest him of his personality and causo to bo placarded In public places ot the college and of tho town sheets of paper branding him as a weakling In character and purpose and as a trailer tq the Gemini. An agreement to submit to the tosts, based upon nn osth of honor, shall be received with warm encouragement; nnd evor thereafter his name shall suggest flawless honor, loyalty and never-dyingrace." lege. . g CHAPTER I.

As has been the enso In former years, they represented somo of tho most prominent .families In tho land. Eventually every one of them would come Into enough of this world's Roods to plnce him high on the pedestal of Independence." With two exceptions, tho persons were easterners; and their names, as they appeared In the book of personal itywritten In tho order of their ln; Itlatien wore Vynno Marshall. Aid rich Bond, Honry.Rlch .Littleton. Dul ler Noble Martlndale, Simeon Pick-ines Woodrlng, Henry Walker c and Gerard Chambers. Ily of precedent, chiefly, Marshall, tho first of tho number to bo clothed nrlth personality, was elected supremo person. Bond, tho second to be was known as the second person; and so on down to Gerard Chambers, who was officially designated as tho seventh person. Four of- - tho persons had places on the 'varsity football team, and three were regular members of the college baseball nine. It had been said that never beforo In the history of tho .Gemini had tho society held such n commanding position In the social and athletic affairs of the college. Old "Prosy" Spindleton once went so far tns to say that tho persons of the 1S9S "Cluster represented seven of tho finest specimens of young manhood ho Tiad ever seen. This was a high compliment, knowing "Prexy" Spindleton as the students knew him. Not ono of the Eeven weighed less than 175 fpounds, and four of them tipped the fbeam at only a few pounds under the 200 mark. The person . with the best "prospects" was Gerard Chambers, known at homo and at school as "Jerry;"; and, If any distinction could be made, tho was, everything considered, tho most attractive star In tho Cluster. Jle was tho son of a great exporting and Importing 'merchant of New York, whore he walked with big freedom In the most exclusive social circles. Wallace Chambers was a very busy man, and his mind was hard riveted to his xtcn8lvo affairs, but he always found 'time to bo glad that his son had been honored with the personality of tho rOemlnl. "Jerry," he ouce said to his delighted son, soon alter tho subject of membership In the society had been broached to him, "I consider you to bo one of tho most fortunate of young men. As far back as I can remember, membership In the Gemini has been sl thing much sought after and much treasured. Of course, you owe much o your father and to your mother, and our good fortune In having been born under the Influences of Gemini and Aquarius gives both of us a shade of the glory that Is yours. We have a right, sir, to demand that you make tho person worthy of tho personality. You have our full consent to do whatever may be expected of you towards establishing your ownership of this lilS honor. And, my boy, when It comes to carrying out any instructions, don't hesitate at anything. If It Is deemed wise to subject you to liardEhlps, don't flinch. Then Is tho time to show the Chambers colors, my boy the time to float them highest. I don't believe you will disappoint either of us. And, I might add, the white feather would be the greatest of disappointments to me." Hack In the old days this mighty merchant had been a sailor on the sea, and If it had not been for his Interest In his vast and business affairs, his restless spirit, stimulated by life on the wave, might have been more strongly assertive. Ills adventures on the sea, lie often had said, would go a long way towards filling a big volume with matter of tbo most thrilling sort. Ho seemed to find satisfaction in the knowledge that his son tho seventh person had a disposition patterned after his own. Jerry Chainbors sailed through his senior year with the "Chambers col ors" flying at the top of the mast. His record was scrupulously clean, so far as a record goes at college, and In many departments ho stood at the y Yea-manvlr-tiirinl-ate--- front. formality, notified tho other lersons that on tho following night a mooting would be hold In tho dark tiess of tho chamber. No detail of no tlflcatlon was necessary to convey tho purposo of tho gathering. A few minutes beforo the time set for the destiny meoting, us tbo final convention of tho persons lu tho chain her had come to be known 11:30 o'clock tho supremo person entered the chamber. For u time ho was alone tho doctrine of Itodnoy Gravos or solemn exercises tho supreme person, with Threo days beforo commencement dnlncd thnt ho should he nlone nnd mado the last preparations. From tho vault ho took the constitution nnd bylaws of the Gemini and tho black sack of destiny. These ho placed on n long blnek table, which stood at the side of the first chair. After donning his official regalia a long black robe with hood nttnehed ho turned off tho gas and lighted a stub of candle, which ho placed on tho table. Precisely at 11:28 o'clock ho opened tho door leading to tho room of rest, and standing on tho threshold in tho full nnd solemn dignity of his office, spoke In subdued tones, slowly, Impressively: "Persons of tho Gemini, It Is the command of the supremo person that ye enter Into tho chamber. There shall ye know more." In measured tread ho reached tho first chair. The others slowly filed to their allotted soats, arranged In n around tho first chair. For n mlntito there wns full silence, then tho ruler, slowly lifting his shrouded head until tho dim candlo light touched It, said: "To beltovers In the doctrlno of tho Gemini, ye that are clothed with tho personality inspired by our beloved Rodney Graves, yo are hero for a purpose. This night, In tho full darkness of this sacred chamber, yo shall take Into hand that which tho mighty and beloved supreme person of last year has deemed wise that yo should have. This far, my brothers, yo havo borne your honors well, and ye deserve In fullest measure the approval of your supremo person. "It Is tho night of destiny. Who among us shall be tho first of all Gemini persons to be branded publicly as an unworthy wearer of the PJn of tho Twlns as a weakling In character, as a coward, as a traitor to our beloved and honorable fraternity!" With an earnest expression of confidence In the course that each would follow, he arose to his feet and took the1 black sack of destiny Into his hand, continuing: "Now, beforo your eyes and in the light of tbo candle that is burning low, I tear away the seal and open the sack. Now wo have but to wait." Tho eyes of all turned to the candle. The tallow now was but llttlo more than a smudge and the light was beginning to sputter. Gradually it burned away until It was only a dying spark of wick. When 'the room was In total darkness, the supreme person, in moro solemn tones, went on: "It Is the command of all Gemini that I, your supremo person, now placo my hand Into the black sack of destiny and take out an envelope." Slowly and Impressively he drew out his Instructions. "Mine Is drawn," ho added, "and may the spirit of Rodney Graves Inspire me to do all that a true and worthy persqn should do." The sack was passed to the second person, who, after drawing out an envelope, handed It on to the third person. There was but ono envelope left when tho sack reached the steady hand of Gerard Chambers, tho seventh person. "Mine Is drawn," said Jerry, "and may tho spirit of Rodney Graves guide mo well." "Now let tho light bo given," said tho ruler; "let each know what destiny be his." The gas was lighted and a big black screen was placed directly behind tho first chair. A lamp was hooked on the wall behind the screen, abovo the portrait of Rodney Graves. Tho supreme person, now tho first person, divested of his official regalia, was the first to go behind tho screen, thero to read tho contents of his envelope. Ho was gono less than a minute, and when he came Into the view of tho wondering persons thero was a soft smllo on his lips and an cxprcs slon of relief in his oyes. In turn, tho others read their instructions behind the screen; Tho seventh person was out of view for fully five minutes. His long absenco from tho created unusual wonder and surprise In tbo minds of the others, who, when he finally reached his chair, subjected him to most searching glances. There was Just a suggestion of uncertainty In his face, twnpered, no doubt, by the gaze of the others. ' "Yc hayq drawn, your lotji," said again in tuo rooe or. tno su prcmo person, "and .now may ye seek the privacy of your rooms, .thero to deliberate May tho spirit of Rodney Gravos guide well yo all." Within a few minutes tho ijevon persons wero enjoying tho full freedom of tho room of rest. Without exception they exhibited light and happy spirits, "You certainly took your tlmo about It, Jerry," said tho wondering Marshall. "There was no loitering," smiled Jorry. "I really think I rushed mat ters." "Well, you'vo got us all guessing, I can say inai mucn. 'I 'might say that I'm a little sur prised myself." , glad I don't havo.

Thero were 1,070 student at tho college, all young men ranging principally between tho ages of 18 and 21; nnd among them wero represented many of the foremost families of social and Industrial America. Tuition at tho colleges was small, and for that reason the school was classed at tho head of the country's "representative" seats of higher learning. Thero had been instances whero young men energetic,4 ambitious and capable of bearing against tho rub that goes tho wrong way had worked their way through tho school, but they wqre hopelessly few, Tho cpllege had posed as a democratic Institution, but It was In reality exclusive almost to a degrco of snobbishness, and only tho sons of the liberal rich could attend with comfort and Independence. Tho perfumed "atmosphere" was stifling 'to the less blest. For moro than 150 years the college had nestled among tho hills that sloped away In gentle, plcturosquo beauty to tho sea. Tho main hall the nucleus of the school In which thd affairs wero conducted, commanded In old colonial simplicity from ono of tho loftier knolls, and from It. like tho spokes of a great wheel, hedge-line- d avenues showed' tho way to tho other buildings, most of which bore the stamp of latter-damaking. Hack of tho college, less than a mile distant, was tho settlement, which skirted the town. Horo lived tho students and here stood their retreats and lodges. Tho college owned Its origin to tho munlllcenco of an old Virginia planter, who graciously bestowed his gift upon his majesty's most loyal subjects In the colonies. At tho founding exorcises, tho aged benefactor reverently bowed his head, when the banner of his king was hoisted to the staff that topped tho squatty, structure. This flag fluttered In tho breezes that camo In from the sea until tho new spirit displaced It with another. Tho years crept on towards tho newer era; tho Institution gradually outgrew the urecarlousneai nt Its Infancy and oamo Into tho shaping spienaor or its eany youth then Into the young glory that was surely American, When the king's flag was lying away among tho relics of other days; when tho'rldu of Revere was sorvlnir na nn Inspiration to children that heard juries 01 vnior a meir parents knee; when tho pictures of Lexington y small-windowe- d and Hunker Hill and Yorktown had becomo firmly fixed In their frames; when tho hands of tho sturdy builders wero beginning to reach out to tho west, thero camo to tho college a young man named Red-neGraves. This young man, the son of a shipmaster, and a son of tho sea himself, soon attained a distinction at tho school that, to say the least, was unique. His being fairly breathed that sort of originality which has como so strongly to characterize present-dacollege Ufa. Rodnoy Graves had given some comfort to his father's anxious heart by remaining In school throughout tho full course. In thoso times, when students wero few and college-buildinwas not the easy matter of today, It was not difficult to stay In school. Graves had given promise that was about all; In painful frankness, the giving of promise was nil that permitted him to completo his course, albeit ho generally was considered to bo tho brainiest fellow In school. His class records at times brought tho blush of humiliation to bis father's cheeks, and moro than onco ho felt the weight of parentnl censure and threat. Scores of his fellow students had attained, without csneclal dir. Acuity, tho stamp of high approval wnicn ne, in his independence, had never oven seriously contemplated. Hut Rodney Graves honelnxalv shiftless and no account In tho minds of tho staid professors did not leavo tho college without achievement. When the names of many who had departed with tho glory of excellence In their school work had been lost to ovory- tning hy tho registrar a musty records, tho name of Hndnnv Gravos shono out brilliantly. Tho older ana more nrmly established the school became tho more Indelibly impressed bocame his namo.
