Russell Sage expects to reach the

The veteran keeps pretty closely to
his office, at No. 31 Nassau street,
and, regularly at noon trudges to the
Western Union building, at 195 Broad
way, lo luncheon. Of recent jeais,
since the Norcross adventure in
which the dynamiter lost his own life
and severely injured I^tidlaw in at
tempting to kill Mr Sage, he is very
careful as to whom he admits into his
office. But his eye tea bright as ever
and the passing yeais do not seem
to alter his appearance.
A man who met him recently thus
describes him "Ho is almost 90
years old, and does not look to be GO.
He is tall, thin, but not wasted. His
body is that of a man who is aging
without excess. His shoulders are a
bit stooped. His forehead is not the
bulging dome of so many successful
Americans. It slopes backward and
gets narrower toward the top. ,Hi
face is not a strong one. In years
gone by it may have been stern, or
it may not. It was covered with a
beard, but is now smooth-shaven. It

strength. Hi wink says, plainly as

His nose is a good, strong nose, but
it does not overshadow its fellow feat

at the same time lifts those of his
