The sudden death of Rev. Dr. DeKoven, dean of the Roline, Wis. college, of apoplexy is announced. At 9 o'clock March 19th, deceased was in excellent health and conversing with a student, when suddenly he exclaimed, "Help me, please," then fell back into the chair unconscious and died within ten minutes. Dr. DeKoven was about 47 years of age, and have been connected with the Racine college for the past twenty years. The call he recently received from St. Mark's church, Philadelphia, he declined only the day before his death. His death is attributed to overwork and anxiety since his accident about six weeks ago at which time he fell and broke his leg.
