Had Forecast Her Own Death; Predicted Death of Detective Ringer, Who Was Slain.

Asking to be made a member of the Catholic church on her deathbed, Mrs. Frederick Allen, 405 South Twenty-fifth avenue, died of heart failure Monday afternoon, after Father Stagno of St. Ann's church had administered supreme [extreme] unction. Mrs. Allen was better known as "Madame Evelyn," spirit medium.

She had practiced as a medium in Omaha for 18 years. Twelve years ago she was said to have predicted the death of City Detective Ringer two weeks before he was shot and killed while attempting to arrest two box-car thieves in a rooming house. Chief of Police Van Deusen was with Ringer at the time of the shooting.

According to her husband, Frederick Allen, 405 South Twenty-fifth avenue, the medium had been predicting her death all winter. She is survived, besides her husband, by three sons, Virgil and Leroy and I. K. McFarland; and a daughter, Mrs. Frank Snyder, all of Omaha. Mrs. Emos Thompson, another daughter, lives in Denver.

Funeral services will held today at St. Ann's church. Interment will be in the Holy Sepulcher cemetery.
