New Tork, Aug. 6. Charging locked
doors and a wife vanished from His
home at No. 20 West . 74th street,
Lou Tellegen, matinee idol and hus
band of Geraldine Farrar, according
to his lawyer, has brought suit for
separation against the Metropolitan
Opera star. . . - .
Harry N. Steinfeld of No. 140, West
4 2d street announced last night that
the suit was filed on grounds of de
sertion in Westchester County Thurs
day, and the summons and complaint
was served on Miss Farrar Thursday
night at her home on West 74th
Telleg-en- chan-ges, aocardlng to his
lawyer, that Miss F&as-ar has barred
him- from his home since e returned
from a fishing trip at West End,
Lona? Branch, on Jury 25. On that
date, it is said, he received a note,
handed him by a representative ' of
Alvin Untermyer, lawyer at No. 120
Broadway, requesting him to call at
Mr. TTntermyer's office to talk over
the difficulties which had arisen be
tween Miss Farrar and himself.
"Under no circumstances." said the
note, "are you to enter Mrs. Telle
gen's house or approach her in any
way." It. further informed him that
if he would supply his address, his
wearing apparel and other posses
sions would be sent to him.
Mr. Tellegen returned to New York,
where be put the matter in the
hands of bis attorney. Upon calling
at his home, it is alleged, he found
it inaccessible to him because of . new
locks. It is said rings at the bell
brought him no response and when he
called the house on the telephone
servants informed -him Mrs. Tellegen
was out of the city. The upshot of
the matter, his lawyer said, was his
suit for separation.
The underlying cause of the do
mestic difficulty alleged to exist be
tween the Tellogens has not been
made public bv either side, but it
was hinted that Tellegen's talented
wife did not share his desire for a
quiet home life because of her pro
fessional aspirations. Mir. Tellegen
had epent a month at West End be
fore he received the note that
brought hirn back to the city. It is
said his wife visited him there sev
eral times during the month, the last
time about two days before he re
ceived the note
At the Tellegen home. No. 20 West
74th street, last night a servant said
Miss Farrar is out of the city with
friends and she had left no forward
ing address. At the Ritz-CarHon Ho
tel, where Tellegen is registered, it
'.as said he would be out until late.
Mr. and Mrs. Tellegen were ' mar
ried in 1916, after a romance which
began in California when they were
acting In the movies together. Until
the time of her marriaige. Miss Far
rar always declared emphatically
that she would never marry, as it
would interfere with her career. Tel
legen, a Greek-Dutch-French actor,
appeared here first in 1910 with Sa
rah Bernhardt.
Alvin Untermyer of Guggenheim,
Unitermyer & Marshall, representing
Miss Farrar, said last night:
"It is not true that Miss Farrar
has been served - with any papers
whatev&r in an action for separation
or otherwise, nor have r received any
such papers for her.
"The fake proceedings in which
Tellegen is so disgracefully indulg
ing would justify her in her deter
mination to have nothing further to
do with him. Miss Farrar does not
propose to try her case in the papers
and regrets it has become necessary
to miko this statement in her be
half. She has been far too lenient
with this arrogant man, as every one
wiU realize when her side of tie
story is told."
Mr. Untermyer .refused to say an
other word or to tell where Miss
Farrar is at present.

Each Day Adds to the Popularity
And Success of Fair Acres
Nothing in the world but bard clean-cut facts are required to popularize Fair
Acres, because this beautiful property has right now, at the opening of the sale all the
attractions and advantages that come to the ordinary property after years of develop
ment work if at all.
A fortune expended on development could not buy attractions to mateh the splen
did Fairfield Beach.
Another fortune could not bring a property right up to the main line of travel
either by trolley or private conveyances.
A fortune might aproach but surely never equal the beautiful surroundings and
still another fortune could be invested in trying to attract the sort of neighbors that are
already at Fair Acres. .
There is every feature thai the home-builder seeks already on the grounds. The
future is but a matter of trimming Tip and rounding out the work already accomplish
ed by nature and our neighbors.
Fair Acres makes a dignified appeal to every person who visits the property.
It will appeal to you.

representative and arrange to convey you to the property.
