New York Herald: Wall street men would not recognize Russell Sage at this country home. Indeed, it may be said, that there are two Russell Sages. One is the Russell Sage familiar to New York the financier railroad man ager, the banker, with more ready cash at his disposal than, perhaps, any other man in the United States. But Russell Sage, the country gentleman, is an altogether different kind of ciharacter. In Wall street he is all business. In his country home at Law rence, L. he is a man of leisure. People, who know him as the close and accurate financier, with no time to waste, and little or no sympathy for the every day amusements of the Wall street man, have come to believe that this is the only life he leads; that tils evenings are given to calculation and his leisure hours to figuring out pos slble profits. Somehow or other this idea of Russell Sage has spread from Wall street all through New York Indeed, the average New Yorker ex presses surprise when informed that Kussell Sage has a country toome. The relaxations and amusments offered by the country are supposed to be quite ioreign to tils character. As a matter of fact, there is hardly a man in Wall street who more thoroughly enjoys the quiet simplicity and restfuiness of a country life. Mr. Sage occupies a handsome but fclmple frame house at Lawrence, L. I. It is surounded by some five acres of land. with spreading shade trees, cool and grateful lawns, and having numerous box hedges, vlhich afford much relief to the wearied eye of the tired Wall street man. In his quiet retreat Mr. Sage has enjoyed his summers for many years. A large stable is back of the house. Nearly half a dozen horses are kept mere. Mr. bage takes great pride in the colts now in his stable. He raises them himself, and broke them to harness and one of his principal amusements is driving them to a top buggy along the beautiful country roads surrounding jjawrenoei He says he can do more with tnem than anybody else. For the costly fadt affected In their country homes by many Wall street men Mr. Sage, as a common sense American, has nothing but contemn! He has no ue 'or orchids and places little value upon the exotics grown in conservatories. He likes the plain simplicity or the trad ona farmer. Kustiell Sage as you see him, driving about Lcmg Island, is a typical Long Inland farmer. He wears an old straw hat and clothes that are for convenience rather than for style. Mr. Sage displays all the exuberance of a boy in hitching up his horses and going out for a drive. He likes to talk about the crops. With the eve of an expert he watches the development of every field from spring to summer within a radius of many miles about ni country home. From the appearance of the fields and the condition of the live elock he real izes the degree of business talent pos sensed by the proprietor. Many a Lcng Island farmer struggling for a bare living and kicking against what he calls the money power" could derive useful lesenns in hits own business from Kussell Sage. Even the villaee store keepers of the Long Island towns, who are so voluble on economic subject. might gather wisdom from this simpM resident of Lawrence, who himself kept a small grocery store at Trov. and made money there in spite of nerce competition. Ruesell Sage is a commuter. He comes to town early and goes hrnne late. During the summer his Fifth avrnue residence is cloed up. Four or five servants are kept at his house in Lawrence. There is not on the whole of Long Island a country house where oiter housekeeping Is to be seen. Mrs Sage takes great pride in the manage ment of her household ami 1t aftonis every iiopsible comfort.

Hansen had been out late the night of the robbery and was returning home when a man pushed a pistol into his face and ordered him to stand still. Tine highwayman proceeded to relieve Hansen of $5 in money, a gold watch and chain und a gold ring.

Mr. Hansen reported the robbery at the time, but no arre.ots were made. Yesterday morning he was ptanding in his ehop on East Sixth, with his back to the coiuuer, when a stranger entered and approaching Charles Stout, a clerk, asked for some steak. The instant he beard his voice Mr. Hartsen turned quickly about. He thought he had lieurd that voice once only, and lookUtg the man over, Hansen was perfectly satisfied he was none other than the lone highwayman. So certain was Mr. Hansen of the Identity of the man that lie went to the police station, related his story and wore out an information for the arrest of the stranger on ihe charge of highway robbery.

HERMA ia Hoh The Waldorf of Des Maine; Sunday Dinner (1 6 o'clock week day Regular 3Ieals Victor and Mrs. Sagf! have many things In common, especially concerning objects of charity In which both are interested. Miss Gould never visits the Lawrence house without paying particular attention to its domestic pet. Of these there are a goodly number at the summer home of Russell Sage. At Lawrence are not only the cats, but all the other living lares aJtd pen-atea that. JVIr. and Mrs. Sage dote on. Perhaps his colt and filly are Mr. Sage's favorites, though the handsome, full grown Maltese cats are a close second. Mrs. Sage is devoted to her two parrots, Polly Gray and Polly Green, no called from their plumage. "At night hen we are in town, said Mrs. Sage, a day or two ago, "Malta and Malieta get right up on the mantel over the open fireplace in the library and purr and purr on each side of the clock. If it wasn't for the purring, you'd think they were regular pieces ot bisque, they lie so still. We think it Just a pretty picture. "The parrots are apt linguists and afford lots of amusement. In the morning when the maid comes into the room Polly Gray will call out. 'Good morning, Delia. Thank you for a "If Pollv Gray has any apparent reason to be Jealous of Polly Green she shrieks, 'You don't love me, Polly Green is a fine whistler. We had to laugJt the other day when a strolling organ grinder came along and played some popular air, and Polly Green began to pipe out a few bars in imitation." Keoently when Miss Helen Gould was visiting the Sages she persuaded Mr. Sage to pose with Malta and Malieta while she took some good photographH. The parrots do not appeal to Mr. Sage as they 'do to his wife. He seems to think them loo frivolous, and their chatter wholly inconsequential, though a very apropos remark squawked by either Polly Gray or Polly Green will often make Mr. Sase smile, while his wife will be fairly convulsed with laughter. Mrs. Sage recently fell while alighting from her carriage in this city, and during her enforced inactivity In her room the parrots have been a constant source of diversion.
