The Augustana College and Theological
aeminary is already one of the greatest
seats of Larning in the west. This can
only be accounted for oa the gronnd of
earnest support by our Swedish Ameri
cans, the zealous efforts of the students
to promote the cause, the great love and
frequent munificent donations by
American friends, the most important of
which are those of P. L. Cable. Hon. Ben
T. Cable. J. and C. J. Sdmufclsnn.
Ophicm. 111., and others. The n suits of
these factors have induced the students
to set a high mark. viz.. to raise the
present Augustana College and Theoloci-
cil Seminary to the rank of a university.
Tue students have carefully observed the
remarkable progress, which the institu
tion has enjoyed during the past years.
This enables them to perceive and anti
cipate the grand future, which lies
before "Augustana." An associa
tion knowu as the Auzustana
University association has been formed
by the students and incorporated in ac
cordance with the laws of the state of
Illinois. The prime object of this associ
ation is to secure funds, a tract or tracts
of land in the vicinity of Augustana col
lege, for the purpose of converting the
same into a beautiful park, such as has
hitherto been spoken of in the Improve
ment 6i3ociation, with trees planted and
walks laid out in such a manner that uni
versity buildings may be erected upon
the same without removing trees or walks.
Any person may become a member of this
association by subscribing and paying
the membership fee, the sum of $25.
Several thousand dollars have already
been secured, and the students now ex
tend a most hearty welcome to all friends
of education to join this association.
The University association has en
gaged G. T. Lovegran to see to the inter
est of the association during his summer
vacation. Mr. Lovegran is a student of
the collegiate department, and well
known to all the prominent people in
the three cities as a young man full of
good spirit and enthusiasm.

THE ABGPB. FItlDAY,
All trains on the Rock Island road from
the east are delayed from four , to six
hours, in consequence of yesterday's
great washout near Ottawa. Trainmen
state that the telegraphic reports of the
extent and nature of tb.8 inundation have
not been overestimated. At Utica the
people have fled to the hills above the
village, the streets of which are running
rivers. People are also seeking shelter
in the cement mill and in the fa.m houses
and bares about. When a courier left
Utica several children were reported as
missing and one as drowned. The loss
of live stock and damage to buildings and
merchandise cannot as yet be estimated.
The Rock Isiand tracks are washed out
for a mile or more, and all trams was for
hours at a standstill. Passenger trains
are running south on the Chicago,
Burlington & Qaincy from Ottawa - to
Streator. thence to La Salle vis of the
Illinois Valley & Northern, where con
nection is made with the main line.

"Crazy George," the Henry county im

his outfit cf mules and old trash, and was
driving along Second avenue, followed,
as usual, by a mob of ema'l boys. When
near Seventeenth street. George became
enraged at the boys, and leaping from his
wagon in a rage and frothing at the
mouth, started after them on a run. The
boys fled, but one little fellow, Freddie
Gross, was overtaken by the embecile
and beaten with his whip. George then
staited on bis way, pursued by Officer
Glass. The Gross boy was badly bruised,

George at all.
