Queer Case of the Death of Robt
HI Kt DIMkublc FtDBl IllH HlH
KappiMrtl &th at Buria! O .ew
The Argus of yesterday soke of the
death at his home near tbe Molice line,
of Robert B. RosenquUt, aai in tlm some
connection mentioned a peculiar expe
rience that befell him a number of years
ago, near Aonawai, in which after aaiu
sanlt by highway robbers, he wai given
up as dead and was buried, being re cued
the next day. Mr. Riseoquist wa only a
Reck Islander in the muter of residence.
He was only known here in his immediate
neighborhood, having lived for the most
part in Molioe, and his associations were
with that city. The Republican of last
eveniDg gives this account of the life of
- Be bad been ailing for about five weeks,
but took to his bed about ten da; s ago.
Dr. Sloan, who attended him, stye that
hia case was one of tbe most remarkable
that he bad ever undertaken. There
seemed to be a complication of diseases,
and it was difficult to determine t ie im
mediate cause of death When he left
him yesterday he had no idea of an early
fatal termination, and had arranged for
a consultation with other physicians this
forenoon, and h3 ws greatly surprised
when notified that death had ensued.
Tbe doctor thinks his disease was a com
plicated case of malarial pjiHonin ;.
Mr. Rosenjii8t was a native of 6 weden,
but came to this country when quite
young, and has resided in this neighbor
hood ever since. He was 44 years and
2 months old. He leaves a w L ow and
three small children . His home was a
pleasant one, and his children are udusu
ally bright and active. Fur a nutaber of
years he was in the saloon business, at
one time in a room opposite tl e post .
ffise block on Sixteenth street. Ha
quit the business some time ago, und has
fcince betn at work for Williams, White
& Co. He had been a member or Manu
factoring lodge, No. 783. A O. U. W.,
but lapsed out about five years at;o. He
was an Odd Fellow, Knd leaves $2,400
insurance in the Covenant Mutual of
Mr. Rosenquist was peculiarly unfor-.
tunate in the matter of accidents. About
fifteen years ago h worked for a farmer
near Annawan. One nisht when going
home from town, ha wis assaulted io a
lonely place by three men. One of them
bad a big hone in bis bands, and beat
Rosenquist about t:.e bea l. until i; was a
mass of terrible bruie Tr e me a sup
posed they had ki te 1 him, hauled the
body into a rivine at one side of the
road, and covered it with leaves and
sticks. Au old mil er in tbe neighbor
hood passed by the n xt forenoon, saw
the evidences of a struggle, discounted
and investigated. He traced the bloody
trail to where the boily lay and uncov
ered it. He was terrib y 'alarmed, but
took what he supposed was a corpse and
flung it over his horse's back and mide
all haste to the f rm where R senqaist
had worked Everybody pronounced tbe
man dead. Water was turned on the
body from a ho?e to free it from the
blood and dirt, when it was do
ticed that the muscles twitched,
and a physician was summoned. Signs
of life, very faint indeed, at first, were
detected, the victim was brjught to cons
Fciousness, and finally recovered. Very
few men have bad as close a cail for the
grave and escaped it. No trace of his
assailants was found, and be always
thought that he wa9 mistaken for soms
other person, as he had no enemies.
About a year ago Mr. RoseD'juist fell
from tbe t ip of a box car, struck on the
bumpers, and broke three ribs. At an
other time he liy near d end's door for a
IsogUime with typhoid pneumonia. Many
other accidents are also accredited to the
man's fateful experience.
The funeral will occur Sunday t.t 2 p.
m., and will be in charge of the local
Odd Fellows' lodge, of whi"h he was a
member. The remains will be interred
at Riverside cemetery. Those who knew
Mr. RosenqiUt best say that he was a
kind-hearte i, honest, affable mun. To
his family he was ev-r a cherwhlnsj hus
band and father. Us appears to have
bad more thn his nh re of bad luck, but
alwavs met tbe ups and downs of life with
a light heart.
