In Serving Papers Jivorce Suit

t hlrnfo Tribune-Omaha Bee Leaaed Wire,
New York, Aug. 7. How Geral
dine Farrar was tricked into accept
ing the summons of the separation
suit of her husband, Lou Tellegen,
was related tonight.
Attorneys for the prize soprano
of the Metropolitan Opera company
stated last night, when news of the
separation became known, that Miss
i'arrar had not been served with
Attorneys for Tellegen, formerly
leading man for Sarah Bernhardt,
insisted Miss Farrar had been
It is said that Miss Farrar was
served by a woman process server as
her automobile was stopped in front
of the once "love nest" of Tellegen
and the, opera star.
Miss Farrar, taking the "letter"
after admitting her identity, dropped
it to the floor of the limousine and
to the woman process server said
with exceeding politeness:
"That's very, very nice of you."
Friends of Miss Farrar and Mr.
Tellegen insisted that there is noth
ing more than a clash of tempera
ment behind his suit for separation.
Charges of Miss Farrar in her prom
ised suit for divorce have not yet
Tellegen Old-Time Lover.
In an interview of May last year,
given in the dressing room of a
Baltimore theater, where Lou Telle
gen was playing, Miss Farrar la
mented the fact that the "modern
young man and young woman knew
so little of the art of, making love,"
and among other things said:
"No, there is no love making now,
except for Mr. Tellegen. He is one
of the romantic lovers of old time."
In an article written for the New
York Times Sunday magazine of
December 26, 1920, Miss Farrar dis
cussed "a great singer's problem in
real life and fiction," appropos of the
new novel of Zola Forester, entitled,
"The Dangerous Inheritance."
Among other things, she said:
"To my mind, the employment of
the singing organ is so delicately ar
tificial and overstimulating that the

Negro Porter Takes
Almost Hour to Talk
Himself Into Jail
McCarty Bullet, negro, Pullman
porter, talked himself into jail Satur
day night. It took him almost an
hour to do so.
McCarty, slightly the worse for
"mule," came into the station and
began telling detectives of a body he
"It's been daid fo days," he said.
After he had exhausted the pa
tience of several detectives he was
turned over to Captain Haze. ,
"Tell your troubles to the desk
sergeant." the captain said.
McCarty began telling his troubles
to Sergeant Heil. As he did so an
officer searched his pockets and
found a half-pint of "mule."
McCarty was booked on an intoxi

forbearance of the man than the

ship where the woman is the pro
fessionally gifted one, or shares a
musical profession in common with
her husband or artist-companion.
Handicapped by Nature.
"That 'genuis is an infinite ca
pacity for taking pains' is more than
a casual utterance. Nature has so
fashioned women that, born with de
cided ambitions to encompass a
destiny outside the four walls of
home, they are always to be handi
capped (at' some awkward physical
moment or as a result of some emo
tional condition) and oftentimes be
trayed by themselves, either for
their welfare or undoing.
"The instinct of motherhood, the
thousand and one feminine atavisms,
cannot be thrown lightly aside, be
cause to the heritage one woman
bears in common with her millions
of sisters has been added a voice
or a definite talent for expression,
making her a factor to be reckoned
with in addition to the more conven
tional problems that confront every
member of the feminine gender."
In other interviews Miss Farrar's
views on men and marriage are re
called. Men Like Cakes.
"Men are like cakes. The one
with the pink icing still in the bot
tom of the bag always seems more
delectable than the one with green
icing out of which we have taken a
bite," she said in 1915.
"I shall never marry. I never in
tended to marry. I am old-fashioned
enough to think a woman should be
subordinate to her husband and I
must have my freedom or I can't
work," was her statement in 1912.
"One can be a splendid woman
and a great artist, but not a great
artist and a mother.
"There will be one less unhappy
marriage if Geraldine Farrar keeps
out of it," she predicted August 29,

By Grave Political Crisis
Buenos Aires, Aug. 7. President
Yriogen is confronted by a sudden
political crisis, which seems to
threaten him with the loss ot the
control of congress and at the be
ginning of the campaign for election
of a new president next March. Both
houses of congress Thursday and
yesterday, were without a quorum.
The trouble grew out of a demand
on the president by a majority of
congress for an explanation of his
failure to apply the provisions of the
homestead law, enacted last year.
Political observers see in the situ
ation the first indication of the con
summation of plans for the combi
nation of socialists and con-ervists
to effect the defeat of the president.
