CHRISTNER, Myrtle

MEYERSDALE, Oct. 11 - With a 38-calibre revolver clutched in her hands, the lifeless body of Miss Myrtle Christner, 18, was found Saturday morning by a niece, at the home of James E. Leckemby of Sherman street, where Miss Christner was a housekeeper. Coroner William J. Logue returned a verdict of suicide. Miss Christner apparently was in excellent spirits, Miss Gertrude Lintz told authorities. Miss Lintz, who resides in another apartment in the same building, said that Miss Christner talked to her Saturday morning after the former had completed her daily chores. The girl, who had been the housekeeper for Mr. Leckemby since the death of his wife about three months ago, fired two shots, authorities said, from an automatic revolver. One of the bullets went through the floor, but Mr. Leckemby and Miss Lintz, both of whom said they were in the building, heard no shots. The other bullet penetrated her heart. Miss Christner's niece went to her aunt's room and found the body. One of Miss Christner's brothers was puzzled on acount of two shots being fired, but following a second investigation last night by C. C. Jacob, Somerset county detective, the brother was convinced that his sister had ended her own life. No motive was assigned for the suicide. She was a daughter of Urias J. Christner and the late Savilla (Coleman) Christner, former residents of Meyersdale. Mr. Christner now resides at Finzel, Md. Mrs. Christner died several years ago in a Pittsburgh hospital. Besides the father, the following brothers and sisters survive: Mrs. Alvin Copland, Orlando R. and Bud Christner of Pittsburgh; Mrs. Samuel Wright of Salisbury; Mrs. Lloyd Forrest, Stewart, Carl and Paul Christner of Meyersdale, and Harry Christner, who resides with his father on the farm on R. F. D. Salisbury. The funeral service will be conducted Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Forrest home in Sherman street. Rev. Orville A. Lorenz, pastor of the Main Street Brethren Church, of which Miss Christner was a member, will be in charge. Interment will be in Union Cemetery.
