Dubuque, Iowa, Sept 21. – Professor Henning Jensen "Prestidigitateur,” while performing, at Union Hall, in Marion, Iowa, last evening, was fatally injured during one of his feats, which was to allow anyone to shoot at him with a pistol loaded with shot or ball. It appears that the tube on the end of the ramrod, which drew the charge after being rammed down, remained in the pistol, thereby leaving it fully loaded. The Professor was shot in the head and cannot survive.
