heard today without surprise that Frltzl

the student and the prima donna"."
Rumors for weeks have bei-n circulat
ing that the fascinating Frltzl and her
novelist husband had agreed to sepa
rate. There was to bo no fuss, no florid
dlncusBlons of sentimental differences
which had shattered their love. Both
agreed, It Is said, upon a quiet dissolv
ing of their matrimonial partnership.
This was two months ago at the
Plaza Hotel, in thlB city. Mr. Fox went
to his home, at Big Stone Gap, Va.,
while his young wife more than fifteen
ears his Junior took up rehearsals for
the season she has just begun in a new
opera, "Tho Love Wager," composed by
Charles J. Hambltzer. whom Miss
Scheff discovered playing In a hotel
orchestra In this city.
Regrets the Publicity.
At her hotel in Baltimore Miss Scheff
expressed regret that any rumors of
matrlmonal discord had reached the
public. While having nothing to say
about the separation or the possibility
of an action being Instituted by her,
the sprightly prima donna denied with
some asperity reports that Mr. Fox
Intends suing for divorce.
It was Mated by friends that Miss
3cheff still loves Mi. Fox.
"Mr. Fox Is a quiet man, happy In
his home and loving only tho peace and
quiet of the Virginia hills," said the
friend. "He Is essentially a student,
whereas the theater to his wife is her
life and her inspiration.
Call of the Stage.
"After their marriage four years ago
Mr. Fox took his bride to his home In
the mountains of Virginia. The quiet
gentleness and love of her husband in
their home far from noisy Broadway,
was something new to her. Then came
the call of the stage. She wanted to
go back, but she wanted Mr. Fox to
go with her. For a time he yielded, bo-
cause he was as much In love with her
as she was with him. But the constant
traveling, attendant upon her custom
ary life, was Irksome to him. He pined
for the freedom and quiet of his hills. '
