Rv. T. N. Hasselquiat, D. D.. prw
dnt of Atumsuna College aad Ideological
Seminary aid profesaor of Urology, died
at kia home oa the college groand in the
euUrn part of the citj thia morning at
7 o'clock. The venerable divins had
beem gradually failing emce list rpriog,
owing to hia advanced age and the gen
eral filing away of the vital function in
consequence. He managed, however,
to keep about and attend to his dnties at
the college, bat on Sunday last he was
attacked with eastric catarrh, but
not what would hare been
called eerious to a younger and stronger
man. The doctor though wa usable to
physically baf.le with it and was soon
compelled to take to his bed from wbich
he never rose. He sink steadily dcriog

stated this morning, when he quietly
breathed his last
Dr. Dasselquist was bora ia the parsh
of Ousby, in southern Sweden. March 2,
1816, and graduated at the university of
Lund in 1835. He at once prepared him
self for the ministrr of the established
Church of Sweden, the Lutheran, and was
ordained by the bishop of the diocese 3f
Lund in June, 1839. He labored there
for thirteen years, and in 1S52 accepted a
call extended him by the Swedish Evan
gelical Lathern church of Galesburp,
Knox county, and in October of the same
year he entered opoa hia duties, his work
being characterized by great zal and self
denial. While serving as pastor at Galet
burg he also organized congregations at
Knoxville. Wataga, Altoona and at other
places in Enox, Henry and Bureau coun
ties. Upon the organizition of the
Scandinavian Evangelical Lutheran Au
gustan a synod ia 1660, Dr. Hasselqu.st
was elected its first president and for ten
years he held the position, resigning it
in 1870. when he made a visit to hia na
tire country, and he vu succeeded by
Rev Jona Swensson, of .Andover, Id.
It was in 1S63 that Dr. IIvsse)q jist
was called to the position of professor of
theology at Augustana Theological sem
inary at Paiton, Ford CDunty. H was
the first, and f or a time the only professor
f the Institution, and the enrollment of
pupils the first jew was only 12. He
entered upon his work, however, with
courage and such a degree of wisdom
was manifested in his manner of hand
ling the undertaking that the college rap
Idly grew in importance until it took rank
among the largest and most important
institutions of leartiog ia the west. In
1875 the college and seminary professors,
studen's, library and maseucs was trans
ferred from Paxton to Rock Island, and
Dr. Hasselquisl's home hia been hire
since. Be retained the positions cf prc
fescot and president up to the time of his
death, though be many times sought to
surrender both, feeling that he had reached
the stage of life when younrjer ha ads
should take up the work, but the Augus
tana synod would not listen to the doc
tor's declination and he was retained. The
beautiful and touching tribute paid at the
last meeting of the synod in this city two
years ago was an evidence of the affec
tion and esteem ia which he was held by
the members of the synod all over the
In addition to his duties as pastor, pro
fessor and president, Dr. Hasselq-iist has
sine 1855 been engaged almost contin
ously in editorial work. In that year be
founded the Swedish paper Old and New
Homeland, the first Swedish journal of a
political nature id the west and it is still
published at Chicago. In 1856 he estab
lished True Homeland a religious paper
which has since been changed to Augus-
tion Missionary, of which the doctor was
editor in chief at his death .
It was the chief aim, purpose and de
light of Dr. Hasselquist to elevate his
countrymen in America and he was with'
out doubt the most distinguished gentle
man of the Swedish nationality in this
country. Hia life work, but a meagre out
line of which can be contained in a news
paper biographical sketch, cannot be esti
mated in its scope or its attendent re
sults. In the same measure of love that
he baa been regarded by all who have
been associated with him in any capacity,
will be be remembered by coming genera
tions of Swedes and Americans.
Dr. Hasselquisl's wife died in May.
1881, and be leaves three children, Na
thaniel and Joshua, of this city, and Mrs.
Esther Pease, of Philadelphia.

president and as soon as the various so
cieties can get together, suitable resolu

P. J. Johnson, the atone cutter, came
near meeting a fatal accident at Port By
ron Junction Monday evening- He has
beca employed at Waterton by an ice
company, and, with others, he went to
Port Byron Junction for the purpose of
coming down en the Q train. The train
stopped for only a brief time, and started
up abeat the time Mr. Johnson had pur
chased his ticket. He hurried forward
and catching the railing on a platform ct
one of the cars, attempted to get oa
board, but missed his f jottng. He was
dragged a!ong for some distance, and
then his hold upoa the railing gave way
and he fill between the depot platform
and the track. As he was facing Mr.
Johnson thought that he would certainly
be killed, and drew himself as far from
the track as possible. He says that he
fc!i the heels strike his shoulder as they
pass his. but fortunately he had got so
far away that he was not dragged be
neath. He received a deep gash on one
leg just above the knee, and one hand
was badly scratched, but none of Lis in
juries are likely to prove serious.

Tom's Cabin company played to a large
audience in the Unica opera house last
evening, ind their presentation of the
time-honored drama was very creditable.
The twoTopsys were pood, and the spe

laughter. A child actress, who is not five
years of aje, assumed the roll of Era.and
sastaained her part nicely. The other
characters were well taken, and on the
whole the performance gave great satis
