From Ontario County Times 17 July 1878

We learn from the Geneva Gazette that Mr. Augustus McCartey, a well-known photographer of that place, died quite suddenly on Wednesday night, under peculiarly distressing circumstances. The Gazette says:

"Mr. McCartey had been ailing, though not disabled for business, for two or three days. On Wednesday afternoon he came to the conclusion that he was threatened with fever and ague, and applied to Dr. Stebbins for treatment. The doctor told him there was nothing better for such complaint than quinine, and advised him to go to a druggist and obtain several doses of that remedy, taking one of three grains every four hours until the chills were broken up. He went to Maynard & Laning's drug store to have such prescription filled. It seems, according to Mrs. McCartey's account of events, that he came with one dose put up separately as a sample, and the remainder (twenty-five grains) in bulk, which he thought himself competent to divide into the required doses. The only variance he made from Dr. Stebbins' direction was in misconstruing it thus: to take a four grain dose every three hours instead of three grains every four hours. On reaching home at two or three o'clock p.m., he at once took the sample dose, lay down and had two or three hours sleep, from which he awoke in quite profuse perspiration, and remarked that he felt better. He then prepared the second dose from the bulk package, took it as he lay in bed -- found great difficulty in swallowing it -- finally got it down, but remarked at once that it produced strange sensations. In five minutes he relapsed into unconsciousness and insensibility, with contortions of the facial muscles and rolling of the eyes. He fell into a slumber from which there was to be on awaking until the resurrection. Dr. Picot was promptly summoned and speedily responded. As soon as he saw the patient, he knew he was beyond hope. He asked that Dr. Dox be called as counsel, who came accordingly. It was too late for antidotes -- all was over before midnight.

The doctors took possession of the remaining medicine, which was found not to be quinine, although no information is given as to what it really is. Coroner Covert immediately called a jury and commenced an investigation, and an examination of the remains showed that the brain, the heart, the lungs and the external parts of the stomach were in a normal or perfectly healthy condition, while the liver was found to be slightly enlarged. This condition of the vital organs dissipated the theory that death resulted from congestion, apoplexy, heart disease of paralysis. The contents of the stomach were taken in custody by Professor Towler for rigid chemical analysis, and his report will no doubt throw additional light upon the affair.
