PRESIDENT TAFTS TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO MAJOR ARCHIBALD W. BUTT.
Major Archibald W. Butt was on of tho horoos of tho Titanio. Ha was Prosidant Taft'a military aid. Aftor

-Everybody know Archie as Archie.'" said the president. "I cannot go into a box at a theater, I cannot turn
around in my room, I cannot go anywhere, without expecting to sse his smiling facs or to hear his cheerful voice
in greeting. The life of the president is rather iaolated, and those appointed to live with him come much closer
to him than any one else. The bond is very close, and it ia difficult to apeak on such an occaaion.
"Archie Butt's charactsr was simpls, straightforward and incapable of intrigue. A clear ssnse of humor light
ened his life snd these about him. Life was not for him a troublod problem. He was a aoldier, and, when he waa
appointed to eerve under another, to that other he rendered implicit loyalty. I never knew a man who had so
much self abnsgation. so much serf sscrifics, as Archie Butt.
"Occasions like tbe sinking of the Titanio frequently develop unforeseen traits in men. It makes them heroes
when ysu don't expect it. But with Archie it was just as nstural for him to hslp those about him as it waa
for him to ask me to permit him to do something for some one for me.
"He was on ths dack of the Titsnic exactly what he was everywhere. He leaves a void with those who loved
him, but the circumstances of his going are all that we would have had, and, while tears fill tho eyes and tho
voice is choked, we are felicitated by the memory of what he was."
Bt'ore entering upon military lifs Major Butt displsysd high literary ability. Tho best of his stories is "Both
Sidss ef the Shield," a splsndidly written romance of love and war.

could there be better characters aud

though ypu bave beard mine often
enough this morning' f had", indeed,
overlooked that detail or else felt In
different to It, but I handed him my
card, which be read carefully and then
"I reckon you ain't any relation to
the Falmers of Kentucky. I roomed
with two men from that state of your
name years ago when 1 was at Prince
ton." I told tbe colonel that I was not
from Kentucky, but thought there was
aome kinship. I had intended telling
him that the families bad never met j
and that In all probability tbe Ken
tucky Palmers would not know of me,
but I did not finish my explanation, for
as soon as I mentioned kinship he
grasped my band warmly and said:
"Then, sir, you can make yourself
at home in my bouse as long as you
care to. for there were never two finer
fellows than those Palmer boys, even
if they did Join the Yankee army dur
ing the war. I tell you. sir, I am j
prond and happy to entertain one of I
their blood at the Pines. And now,
Jefferson, drive fast, for we must let
Miss Klleo know we have a guest."
The Pines was a distance of some
five miles from the town limits. It
was appropriately named, for after we
entered tbe grounds we passed Into a
primeval forest of tall and stately ,
pine trees. Tbe long needles waved in i
tbe wind, and there was a mournful !
cadence In the branches, different from j
the song we hear in the northern for- '
esta. The ground was covered witb
pine straw, nnd It might have been j
falling there and nngathered for gen- i
eratlons. so thickly did It seem to lie. j
We crosned a branch over which there I
1 had been built nn old stone bridge.
now covered with vines
"That, sir, was built as a memorial
to General Oglethorpe." said my old
host, seeing my curiosity, for the
bridge whs out of all proportion to tbe
size of the stream. "When tbe geo- i

That little act shows as nothing else

In which he held my worthy progeni

episode, but feared to pet ttje colonel
started on what was evidently to him
an Important bit of family history aud
which I suspected stronirly had become
a hobby. "Some dy Ellen shall walk
here with you." he added, 'and show
you the Inscriptions on It. Vou will
find them Interesting.
Fllen acstn. 1 was beginning to feel
the keenest anzk-ry to meet this Ellen ,
' and to wonder what she could be !
! half cook and half lady. I had begun
to think from tbe little bits 1 had plrfc-
i ed np concerning her during the day. ;
We ,pased from the pine trees into a
) long avenue of cedars, and when we.
emerged from this the Pines In all Its ,
I solitary and lonely grandeur stood be-
fore os. rich in coloring from tbe set-
t ting sun that batbed It In a crimson
flow. Ai I looked at it In wonderment
It might hare been a dream out of tbe
past that had taken shape and floated
now across my vision. Its front and

note that some of tbe cj. lumus were on ,
the point of fai'.ing and that others
were cruictllrg to decay. The plaster'
bad fallen from many of them, show-,
tng dull red brick behind, tiut these
evidences of decay pave an additional
ohiirra to tbe scene, augmenting its per
fection os a whole end keeping It in
perfect harmony with Its owner and
the neighborhood of that section. It
seemed to typify the generation then
living there and bgbting against Its
own dituy. 1 was awakened from my
dreamy thought by bearing the colonel
calling loudly for some one to get the
bonse. Presently there came from
around one of the wings a little, half
naked urchin, who said that Mrs. Tur
pin had gone to the Trig funeral, and
that Miss tiller) was cooking tbe din
tier, and that "Young Marsa" bad not
come from the fields.
"Then tell Miss Ellen. Sammle. to
put another finger in the pie. for I have
brought u guest home with me. Now.
sir." turning to me. "if you will come
with me, I will show you your room
and bid you make yourself at home."
We passed under the huge doorway
and entered a large ball which was as
wide as any room I could remember In
iy grandfather's house In New Eng-
land. It was almost bare of fnrnlture.
There were two or more large mahog
any sofas which had once been lined
with black horsehair, but tbis latter
vu so much worn that tbe matting
showed beneath it In places, and io
others It was patched with bright col
ored calico aud sometimes with pieces
of faded silk. The colonel led me up a
flight of stairs, hare or carpet, but

You will be right over the billiard

led Into a beautifully lighted room on
the east side, standing tn the ceuter ot
which was a large, canopied bed. "It
you care for billiards." he continued.
"1 will wager that Kllen can give you
ten points and beat you out. And now,
sir. we bave dinner at 6 o'clock, tor

i nnd not ssked the question beror.
Tft now tfummoneu the courage to
"Colonel, there Is one little thing I
should like to have settled. Business
is business, you know." I said, laugh
ing, for I did not like tbe look of dig

of us I ought to ask you how much

grets over my stupid blunder and, vrhat
seemed worse, my apparent deception
concerning the relationship with the
Kentucky ralmers. Aa long as I
thought I was going to go to an inn of
some kind or to pay my board I bad
not thought it worth: while to explain
the mistake into which the colonel bad
fallen. 1 felt it to be too late now to
confess that in all likelihood there was
no kinship at all or. if any. so remote
as to form no ties of blood and cer
tainly not to earn for me any consider
ation on that score. Feeling like a
cnlprit. I threw myself on the bed, de
termined to leave the Pinea at the first
moment I con Id do so without offend
ing my kind old host.
When the pickaninny, Sam. knocked
at my door to tell me that dinner was
served he found me prepared to do
Justice to anything In the way of food
which might be placed before me. I
bad been traveling all day. to all in
tents and purposes without anything
to eat While anxious to satisfy my
hunger, yet it was with some feeling
of embarrassment that I started down
stairs to meet the colonel. He met me
at the foot of the steps and. motion
ing me to follow him, led me to a
room In one of the side wings. There
I saw two silver goblets, frosted on
the outside, with their rims complete
ly hidden by long and graceful bunches
of mint Without sitting down he
handed me one and took the other
"Of late years. Mr. Palmer," he said,
"we have abandoned the time honored
custom of drinking mint Juleps before
our dinner, but In order that you may
feel perfectly at home and rest certain
of the fact that I feel no resentment
on account of your natural mistake I
have taken the liberty of asking you

It was the first Julep I bad ever
tasted, and I shall never forget with
what delicious force the straw threw
the liquor against the roof of my
mouth. The goblets were soon emp
tied, and I was ushered Into the parlor,
where we were evidently expected, for
the occupants were standing.
"Mr. Palmer, let me present you to
my wife. Mrs. Turpin; to my daughter.
Ellen, and to my son. Ilowell Cobb,
whom I hope you will soon address as
Bud. Ellen, my dear, bid our guest.
Mr. Palmer, welcome, for he Is a kins,
man of my old friends the ralmers of
Kentucky, of whom you have so often
heard me speak."
"Any friend whom my father brings
to us is welcome. Mr. Palmer, but we
make you doubly welcome on account
of the ties which bind our house to
She extended her hand, which I took
and for the first time looked into that
frank, open face. I did not think her
beautiful then, but I was unprepared
for the subtle ease and grace of man
ner and the exquisite poise of her head
and the patrician face that was turned
to me without any sign of embarrass
ment whatever, ner eyes were large
and brown and her bands small and
white. These were the only things
about her that sank them Into my
".Mr. Palmer, father ha taken us
somewhat by surprise, and you must
excuse many things, but we make you
right welcome, and when you get tired
of playing billiards with Ellen and
talking politics witb father 1 have a
good dog and gun at your disposal."
The young man who was addressing
me was tall and big. and when I had
first entered I had mistaken Mm for a
lubberly farm hand, but here he was,
making me welcome with the ease of a
courtier. Mrs. Turpin was a small,
delicate looking woman, but was gown
ed. In a faded royal purple velvet, evi
dently the remnant of an anterior date.
"You young people can make plans
at the table. In the meantime El
len's roast is getting cold," said ths
colonel. Tl.en I remembered about the
cooking and thought for a moment
what a sacrilege it would be to devour
anything prepared by those lovely
bands, but a sudden convulsive pang
of hunger banished my sentimental
thought, and 1 offered my arm gladly
to Mrs. Turpin. while she led the way
to the dining room. It was, in fact, an
immense hall, wainscoted with oak,
but tbe walla above the paneling were
stained and, as far as I could see, even
moldy. It was a gloomy looking place,
but the table was made blight and
heorful bv two big candlesticks. On
the table was a profusion of dishes
some silver, others of rare old china.

I one of tDe latter which was not broken
or chipped, but each steamed witb
rne savory vepetable or meat, and I

Just as we were wont to do In the rail-
road eating houses in New England
when I was a boy. The conversation
was easy and homelike, and I saw
at once that I was not looked upon as
a stranger. No questions were asked
me about myself, for which I was
thankful, and I soon saw, too, that the
colonel did not Intend to relate the
details of our meeting that morning or
I to account to the other members of the
, family for his sudden impulse to in
: Tlt to become a guest at the
' Pines. So. as if by mutual consent, we
refralned from making any reference
to the matter, and I determined to
, leave it to the colonel to make any ex
pianatlons which he might think to be
