Queer Case of the Death of Uobt
Ill Rrmai kablr Final lilne

Before. The Argus of yesterday spoke " the
death at his home ce&r the Mollne line,
of Robert B. Roen quiet, an 3 in the same
connection mentioned a peculiar expe
rience that befell him a number of years
ago, near Anoawai, in which afitr ua as
sault by highway robbers, he was niven
ap as dead and was buried, being re cued
the next day . Mr. Rjseoquist was only a
Rock Islander in the matter of residence.
Be was only known here in his immediate
neighborhood, having lived for the most
part in Moline, and his associations were
with that city. The Republican of last
evening gives this account of the 1 fe of
He had been ailing for about fiven eeks,
but look to bis bed about ten dajs ago.
Dr. Sloan, who attended him. sayH ttat
bia case was one of the most remark! Is
that he had ever undertaken. There
seemed to be a complication of diseases,
and it was difficult to determine the im
mediate cause of death. When te left
him yesterday he had no idea of an early
fatal termination, and bad arranged for
a consultation with othtr physicians this
forenoon, and hi was grea'tly surprised
when notified that death had erjened.
The doctor thinks hid disease was a com
plicated case of malarial pMsoaina.
Mr. Rosenquist was a native of Sweden,
but came to this country when quite
young, and has rei1ed in this neighbor
hood ever since. He was 4 1 years and
2 months old. He leaves a wliov and
three small children. His home ae a
pleasant one, and his children are unusu
ally bright and active. For a number of
years he was in the saloon business, at
one time in a room opposite the post
office block on Sixteenth street. He
quit the business some time ago, an i ha
since be-n at work for Williams. White
& Co. He had been a member of ll&nu
facturing lode, No. 785. A. O. U. W..
but lapsed out about five years ago. He
was an Odd Fellow, and leaves $2,400
insurance in the Covenant Mutud of
Mr. Rosenquist was peculiarly unfor
tunate in the mat ter of accidents. About
fifteen years ao be worked for a farmer
near Annawan. One nisjht when noinp
borne from town, he was assaulted in a
lonely place by three men. One of them
bad a big boDe in bis bands, and beat
Rosenquist about t:e heaJ. until i; was a
mass of terrible bruise. Tre men sup
ported they bad killed bira, hauled the
body into a ravicc at one side of tte
road, and covers! it with leaves and
sticks. Au old mil er in the neighbor
hood passed by the nxt forenoon, saw
the evidences of a struggle, dismounted
and investigated. He traced the bloody
trail to where the body lay and uncov
ered it. He whs terribly alarmed, but
took what he supposed was a corpsn aud
flung it over his horse's back and mde
all haste to the frm where R senqaist
had worked Everybody pronounced the
man dead. Water was turned on the
body from a hoi?e to free it from the
blood and dirt, when it was no
ticed that the muscles twitched,
and a physician was summoned. Signs
of life, very faint indeed, at first, were
detected, the victim was brought, to cnn
sciousness, and finally recovered. Very
few men have bad as clooe a call for tbe
grave and escaped it. No trace of his
assailants was found, and be els-ays
thought that he was mistaken for some
other person, as he hal no enemies.
About a year ago Mr. Rosenquist fell
from tbe tip of a box car, struck mi the
bumpers, and broke three riba. Ar, an
other time he ly near death's door for a
longtime with typhoid pneumonia. Many
other accidents are also accredited to the
man's fateful experience.
The funeral will occur Sunday at 2 p.
m., and will be in charge of the local
Odd Fellows' o, of which he wa9 a
member. The remains will be iBt-rrert
at Riverside cemetery. Those who knew
Mr. RosenquUt best say that he wig a
kind-hearted, honest, affable man. To
his family he wa evr a cherishing hus
band and father. He appears to have
had more th in his eh re of bad luck, but
alwavs met the u;8 and downs of life with
a light heart.
