FILES SCI? FROM PEN CELL
Charles I. Frymire, Convict at Lin
coln, Seeki to Prove Birth.
ATTACKS , MOTHER , TOE MONEY
Find. Lawyer, to Take HI. Peculiar
Case to the County Court for
Heritage of Seventy-Five
From his prison cell In the state peni
tentiary Charles I. Frymire Is petitioning
the county court of Douglas county to pre
serve his rights as the son and heir of Mrs.
Anna C. Carey ot Omaha.
It Is an unusual tale which emerges from
the IJncoln prison. It Includes a hint ot
Illegitimate birth and a direct charge that
Andrew Carey ot Omaha has endeavored
to defraud the convict, who says he Is a
brother of Carey.
The story goes back to the year 1874, In
which Henry P. Carey and Mrs. Apna C.
Carey were married In the state of Penn
sylvania. Either Just! before or shortly
after the ceremony, Frymire says In his
petition, he himself was born. His plea
to the county, court phrases the matter
thus: ' '
. "That Henry P.'Carey and Anna C. Carey
were married In the state of Pennsylvania
bout the year 1S74; that your petitioner
was born to them during lawful wedlock,
or about the date of the said parents' mar
riage." Then Frymire quote, the Pennsylvania
statute to show that Illegitimate children
are legitimatized If the parents marry sub
sequent to the birth of the child.
Mr. and Mrs. Carey moved to Nebraska
where Andrew J. Carey wua born to them.
Henry Frymire was brought up by an
uncle of the name Frymire back In the
Keystone state. Tears later he too came
(west. But he did not Join the. Careys In
Omaha. Instead he went to Frontier
county of this state where he married.
There,, too, he managed one way or an
other to kll'. a man some years ago.
Frymire was tried In the district court
of Frontier county in 1908 for murder, and,
being convicted of manslaughter, was sen
tenced to ten years. At the trial, Henry
P. Carey, according to the statement of
Frymire's attorneys, testified that Fry
mire was his son.
In September, 1907, Henry P. Carey died,

A little DiapepBin will make yon feel

The question as to how long you are

ach is merely a mutter. of how sqon you
begin taking some Dlupepsiu. 1 ',
It your .tftornaeh Is . larking . In dtges
tlvo power, why not help the' stomach
to do Its work, not with drastic drugs,
but a re-n forcemeat of digestive agents,
such as j are naturally at work tn-the
People; with weak Stomaohs ' should
take a little Dlapepuln occasionally., and
there will be no more Indirection, .no
feeling like a lump of lead In the stom
ach, no heartburn, Sour risings, Gas on
Btomachor Belching of undigested food,
Headaches, Dlsslness or Sick Stomach,
and besides, wha you eat will not fer

seous odors. All these, tymptoins result
ing from a sour, out-of-order stomach
and dyspepsia are generally relloved five
minutes after taking a little Dlapepsln.
Go ,40 your- druggist and get a 60

you will always go to the table with a
hearty appetite, 'and what you eat ' will
taste good, bocause your stomach and
Intestines 'will bo , clean and fresh, and
you will know there are nqt going to
be any more bad nights and . miserable
days for you. They freshen you and
make you feel like life Is worth living,
leaving an estate of S7.500. Mrs. Anna
Carey, his wife, became executrix, and on
her death In August of last year, Andrew
J. Carey applied to become administrator
of her estate. Here Is where the plot, ac
cording to the charge grows thicker.
Andrew Carey is accused In vthe petition
of Frymire of representing himself to be
the only heir-at-law of his mother, while
aware of Frymire's existence; of his pa
ternity, and of seeking to keep the man
In prison In Ignorance of the fact that the
father and mother had died.
Frymire asks that Albert A. Patzman
of Omaha, be appointed administrator In
Carey's stead. It Is represented that the
estate Includes $6,040 In notes and bands,
and a pool hall at 305 North Sixteenth
street, worth J1.S00.

DAVE O'BRIEN IS HER BOY

Box of Cnndy.
While stopping at Excelsior Springs
Chief of Police . Donahue drove eight
miles into the country with a party of a
dozen other visitors to visit Mrs. Sa:nuels,
the mother of Jesse James, killed by
"Bob" Ford at St. Joseph, Mo., In 18S1.
"She is a wonderful old woman," said
the chief. "She will be 85 years old Sat
urday, yet can recall dates of forty and
fifty years ago with marvelous certainty.
She lives on the farm where her home
has been for fifty years, the houe Itself
being twenty years old when she moved
Into It. She shows today the portnoles
In the walls which were made at the time
the James boys were being hunted first,
Just after the war. Where the plaster
has dropped off In a room of the house
the old hand-made laths show up.
I "Mrs. James, as she is best known in
that section, has but one arm) the right
hand and most ol that arm having been
destroyed by a bomb thrown through a
window during the stormy tlmos when
the Plnkertons wanted her sons, dead or
alive. She shows you the window where
the bomb came through and points out
where an 8-year-old son was when hit
and his entire side torn away; also where
her old negro servant stood when killed
by the same bomb. She asks everybody
If he is from Chicago, against which city
flie holds an undying grudge. She Identi
fies Chicago with the Plnkertons, and
'brutes' Is the mildest word she applies

to those whom she blames for that bomb
throwing. Dave O'Brien Her Sweetheart.
"She insisted that she has a sweetheart
In Omaha, "when she learned I was from
here. When I anked her who It was she
replied: "Dave O'Brien. Ho came to see
me here some years ago and I liked him.
He sends me a box of candy occasionally,
and I do hope he won't forget me on my
birthday.' She admits she Is very fond of
candy, and credits it with helping h?r to
keep spry and chipper. I never saw a
woman of her age who was as bright, as
able to talk, or as quick In getting about.
She apologised for the absence of her
servant, when we arrived, by saying, 'My
hired folks are Just like polioemen; you
can't find 'em when you want 'em.' She did
not know then that I was a polloeman.
"Let mo give you another Instance of
the keenness of Mrs. James. She Insists
she can tell when a man hasr his wife with
him. She Just sits at the window and
watches the visitors alighting from their
" 'If a man has his wife with him,' she
asserts, 'he merely takes hold of her arm
In helping her out of the rig. If he has
his sweetheart or some other man's wife,
he takes her In his arms to lift her out.'
And then Bhe laughs in quiet approval of
her own wit.
Speak, of Frank and Jesse.
"It Is interesting to hear this woman
tell of the fighting days and of how she
helped her 'brave boys,' as she Invariably
speaks of Jesse and Frank. A grave still
kept up In the house lot was formerly oc
cupied by the body of Jesse, but she had
It moved to a cemetery three miles away
once when she decided to leave the
farm. Then she moved back, not being
satisfied In a town, but did not bring the
body of her son with her.
"She was expecting a visit from her son
Frank this week. He lives now In Okla
homa and she takes delight In telling visit
ors how he made her a republican. She al
ways admired Roosevelt, 'because he Is a
fighter, and I like fighters,' but she never
knew much of Taft until Frank wrote her,
after meeting the president last year, to
go out oa the porch and give three cheers
" 'I done It, too,' she says, with a shake
of her head; 'only I gave five cheers for
Taft, and neighbors a quarter of a mile
away thought I had gone crazy. They
came over to find out what ailed me, and
were surprised when I told them I was
cheering for Taffc I'm a republican now,
and sorry I wasn't one years ago.'
"She goes In this way from one subject
to another with a vim and power ot ex
pression that Is most surprising. She
likes married men, and when she finds out
a man Is married she always makes It a
point to pat him on the head In a motherly
"The farm on which Mrs. James live,
originally comprised 250 acre., but she has
only seventy acres left. The neighbors
think a great deal of her and help her
hired man with the work. On the gate of
the farm Is a sign, 'Admlsalon 26 Cents,'
and she explains this by saying it people
want to bother her they ought to pay for
taking up her time. She la worth visiting,

Bogey Man is Abroad and He is Lia

Hot'sewlves should beware of garbage
Not fakirs who sell garbage, but those
who pretend to be sub-contractors under
the new arrangement for the collection of
In district No. 2, for which James
Whalen has the license, a man has al
ready been busy, apparently with question
able Intent He represents that he Is act
ing for Whalen, and in two or three In
stances that are known he has charged
more than double the amount allowed by
law for gathering garbage from cans.
H. H. Bowes, attorney, was the first
citizen to bring information of the hold
up to the health department. He reported
that tho fake garbage collector had charged
his wife 50 cents for emptying the can at
his house, InBtead of 15 cents.
Mr. Whalen happened to be In the health
office when Mr. Bowes called, and said
that he had not begun work at all yet.
He said also that when he does begin he
will make a regular arrangement with
every householder In his district and will
do his own collecting once a month, at the
regular rate provided In the ordinance.
It Is known that the Omaha Rendering
and Feed company also Intends to gather
in the other seven districts on a systematio
plan and to collect at regular periods.
Hence housewives and all others concerned
are warned by the' health department to
find out Just who they are doing business
