There is a saying that "rapid eat
ing is slow suicide." If you have
formed the habit of eating too rapid
ly you are most likely suffering from
indigestion or constipation, which
will result eventually in serious ill
ness unless corrected. Digestion be
gins in the mouth. Food should be
thoroughly masticateid and insalivat
ed. Then when you have a fullnessi
of the stomach or feel dull and stupid
after eating, take one of Chamber

stomach trouble and constipation
have been cured by the use of these
tablets. They are easy to take and

Clinton, Iowa, was our next stop,
and as our efficient agent, A. A.
Bush, had done most of the collect
ing, we did not have an opportunity
to meet many of the people or to
observe their progress, hence we can
not say much about this town. How
ever, each week you get news from
them and know that iClinton is a
wide-awake tcwn. There are two
colored churches here. The A. M. E.
is presided over by Rev. G. W. Slater
and the Baptist church presided over
by Rev. G. E. Sanders, formerly of
Des Moines. Mr. Hancock, who has
a restaurant and ice cream parlor,
has moved from his old location and
is having a new building built for his
future business home. Mr. Hancock
is perhaps one of the most successful
colored men in business in Iowa, hav
ing been in the ice cream and con
fectionery business for twenty years
or more. H. G. Williams is still work
ing at the gas plant as engineer, with
Mr. Weatherall as his assistant. Mr.
M. O. Culberson is still working at
his business and is highly respected
and successful, as is his brother, J.
T. Culberson, who formerly run a
grocery store for about eighteen
years. Mr. Geo. Robinson is doing
well: so is Mr. C. Donahue.
We next landed in the Parlor City,
Cedar Rapids, where we found every
thing moving along nicely and the
people doing well. There is only one
church, the A. E., presided over
by our good friend, Dr. F. J. Peter
son, who formerly^held a Des Moines
church, and is well known throughout
the state, and the church is doing
well. Mr. Thomas Jackson is still
conducting his first class barber shop
and doing well. E. C. Thomas is still
engineering at his old place, where
he has been for the past twenty
years. Mr. R. Hicks is doing nicely.
He formerly lived in Des Moines. W.
H. Milligan is still on his fruit farm
about two miles from town. In addi
tion to raising strawberries, cherries
and all other kinds of berries he has
recently turned his attention to the
raising of fine poultry and is consid
ered authority on the buttercup
breed. Ye editor had dinner at his
beautiful new home, which he has
just completed. It was indeed an
inspiration to see about 350 young
chicks, all thoroughbreds. A wonder
ful improvement to his place are the
new chicken houses and his new home,
which is all modern, with eight rooms.
Brother Milligan and his wife are in
deed a credit to any race and are do
ing more to solve the race problem
than any other colored family in Linn
county. His mother, who is claimed
to be 104 years old, is living with
them and is a very active lady for
her age Rev. Holly is still enjoying
good health and doing well. R. B.
Nelson has a good oarber shop and is
an active man in society here. Rev.
A. Ford is pastor of the Waterloo
church, but lives hers. Mr. L. W.
Lowrey is still in th« mail service and
is still single and taking care of his
mother. He is one of the coming
young men of our race. Mr. T. E.
Woods is another successful man.
Mr. French Perkins lives in the out
skirts of th« city and is a carpet
cleaner, also a hustler, and doing well
and is ona of the real representative
men here. Mrs. May Terry will
chronicle the Parlor City notes this
year for The Bystander, and we will
no doubt hear from this city regular
ly in the future.
From here we went to Marshall
town, another beautiful city where the
Old Soldiers' Home is located. Here
we have two colored churches, the
Baptist, presided over by Rev. Ro
mans, and the A M. E., by Rev. I. H.
Kinney. Both are doing well. Mr.
G. A. Johnson is janitor at the library
and is one of our good citizens and
highly respected, having succeeded
Mr. I. L. Brown, who is now employed
at a large office building and who also,
is doing well. Mr M. J. Jackson is
still working at the same place. Mr.
G. R. Warn is still on his truck farm
in the eastern part of the city doing
well. His daughter, Miss Wilda, is
well known in this city and a promi
nent lady of that town. Albert Walk
er has a first class barber shop here
and is doing well. He has moved
about half a block from the old stand.
His sister, Miss Jessie, is still keep
ing house for him. Here are two
young people that have succeeded
financially and are highly respected
here. They are both a credit to the
race. W. D. Crawford is still work
ing at the same place. Mr. Henry
Flippins is still at the Elks club. He
owns valuable property. Geo. L.
Suter is still engineer at the water
works. George is one of the most in
fluential men of our race here and is
well liked by both races. He is chair
man of the committee on foreign cor
respondence of the Masonic Grand
Lodge. Mr. C. P. Gilmore is one of
the oldest and respected citizens and
owns valuable property and is doing
well. Mr. Grant Jackson is also do
ing nicely. He formerly lived in Des
Moines. At the latter's home Ye Edi
tor ran across an old soldier who is
stopping at the Old Soldiers' Heme
by the name of Leroy Stephens, who
belonged to the colored regiment of
Iowa and served in the civil war. He
was in Company E, First United
States regiment, and enlisted from
Keokuk. Mr. Stephens stated that
he spent six months in Libby prison,
that hell hole of the south. He gave
me the names of some other colored
men that he could remember, as fol
lows: Enos Lukado of Company E,
Keokuk, Iowa John Lewis, from
Keokuk Benjamin Berry, Keokuk J.
N. Davis and Dudley Smith of Keokuk
