Less than ten years ago there was not a single paved street in the city. Now there are many miles of beautiful asphalt paved streets. One of Iowa's plenary institutions, namely the insane asylum, is located just one mile north of here. It is one of the finest institutions of its kind in the state. The colored people are doing nicely. There are many colored farm ers in the county, all of whom are quite successful. Among those who are leaders are Mr. Montgomery, who owns a valuable farm southeast of here, also Mr. Stewart and Mr. Cason. Dr. Gibson lives in town and has a veterinary stable. He is one of the old settlers here. He owns about 200 acres of land, which he has rented out. He also owns some valuable city prop erty. Mr. H. H. Cook, who has been running a confectionery store and was burned out last year, has rebuilt a la...

vi -v .*uV .- HEALTH HINTS. A. J. Booker, M. D. The great military camp is started officially and the fien are down to work in dead earnest. One of the most momentous epochs in the history of the Negro race was enacted when twelve hundred and fifty men took the oath of allegiance Sunday. It was more than men declaring that they were willing to fight and die to pre serve intact the glory and and honor of the United States—any citizen of this country who would not take such an oath ought with the greatest speed take a train or boat to the country he is will ing to die for—it meant that the cream of the Ne jjro race was se lected and stood there with one purpose. It was worth the longest journey to see over a thousand Negro men of training and culture assembled, to say nothing of the unity of purpose. The men themselves ought to feel proud to be participants in such a momentous affair. Every man who held up his hand was making history. Surely every man's "heart with rap ture thrills" w...
