From Ontario County Times 17 July 1878
We learn from the Geneva Gazette that Mr. Augustus McCartey, a
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.
