Death of Dr. R. C. Miot.

Dr. R. C. Miot of this city died at 10:30 o’clock this morning. His death being supposed to be the result of an overdose of morphine.

About 7 o’clock yesterday afternoon Mrs. Miot found her husband in a state of stupor in the store belonging to W. G. Morgan in south Macon. Dr. Miot had been in charge of this store since last May. He came here from Columbia, S. C., and only lately returned from a visit to that place.

He has been in bad health for some time and the physicians who were called in yesterday evening gave their opinion that the stupor was due to an over dose of morphine taken to allay the nervousness consequent upon the patient’s weak condition.

Every effort to restore the unfortunate man to consciousness was without avail and he died without being able to give an account of the cause.

The physicians this morning give the death as being due to heart failure, superinduced by a long attack of nervous prostration.

The body will be shipped to Columbia, S. C., for interment.

The above is from the Macon correspondence of the Atlanta Constitution.

Dr. Miot was a citizen of Cartersville for several years, and was engaged in the drug business. He was a pleasant, affable gentleman, and made many friends during his residence here, who will regret to learn of his unfortunate death.
