Forbes. No. 103 East 29th Street. Mr. Savage was born in Cromwell, Conn. eighty-eight years ago. He came to New York when he was fourteen years old and entered the printing trade. He became a publisher and wrote several books and contributed to the daily press until a few years ago. Mr Savage was a friend of Horace Greeley.
