This gravestone marker is from the Goldfield Pioneer Cemetery in Goldfield, Nevada. It marks the grave of the “Unknown Library Paste Man” who was a starving vagrant who dug up a tub of library paste out of the trash and consumed enough to be a lethal dose. In addition to the flour and water, the paste contained small amounts of alum, which is poisonous when consumed in large doses.

“I am not afraid of death, but would not want to die in some obscure or pointless way.”
—Isabelle Eberhardt, who probably did not even consider death-by-paste

at least he died doing what he loved
