In 1933, a girl dressed all in blue came to Willoughby, Ohio on a Greyhound bus.  She stayed the night in a boarding house before spending the next day greeting everyone with heartfelt warmth.  At the end of the day, she saw the train to New York approach, dropped her cases, sprinted for the track, was hit by the train and died of her injuries.  No one knew her name for 60 years, yet 3,000 people attended her funeral.  And no one will ever know if it was an accident or suicide.

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. Sad. RIP, Library Paste Man.
