Toronto, July 7 - His spine fractured in an auto accident at Beamsville while coming to see his wife a few days before she gave birth to twins, Gustave Adolph Leistner, 671 Broadway ave., Buffalo, died Saturday at the home of his wife's father, William Brown, 12 Barber street, West Toronto. Mrs. Leistner withstood the great shock and the twins - Jack and Muriel - are bonny specimens of babyhood.
It was on June 7 that their father was injured and ten days later they came into the world while he was slowly dying.
Mr. Leistner and his brother, Rudolph, who was driving, were motoring to Toronto [illegible] south of Beamsville, the car turned completely over in making a sharp turn on a hill and rolled 50 feet down the embankment.
Surviving are his widow and the twin boy and girl; three sisters and one brother.
