PRESIDENT TAFT'S TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO MAJOR ARCHIBALD VV. BUTT.
Major Archibald W. Butt was one of the heroee of the Titanic He was President Taft's military aid. After
Major Butt's death the president, vith tears in his eyes and faltering voice, made him the subject of one of the
most heartfelt eulogies ever pronounced over a gallant man, praising his manhood, his courage, his loyalty, his
"Everybody knew 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 anyvhere. without expecting to see his smiling face or to hear his cheerful voice
in greeting. The life of the president is rather isolated, and those appointed to live with him come much closer
to him than any one else. The bond is very close, and it is difficult to speak on such an occasion.
"Archie Butt's character was simple, straightforward and ii-apable of intrigue. A clear sense of humor light
ened his l.fe and thoe about him. Life was not for him a troubled problem. He was a soldier, and, when he was
appo ntsd to serve under another, to that other he rendered implicit loyalty. I never knew a man who had so
much self abnegation, so much self sacrifice, as Archie Butt.
"Occasions like the sinking of the Titanic frequently develop unforeseen traits in men. It makes them heroes
when yeu don't expect it. But with Archie it was just as natural for him to help those about him as it was
for him to ask me to permit him to do something for some one for me.
"He vas on the deck of the Titanic 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 the eyes and the
voice is choked, we are felicitated by the memory of what he was."
Before entering upon military life Major 8u.t diaplayed high literary ability. The best of his stories is "Both
Sides of the Shield.' a splendidly written romance of love and war.

I Ftnrtled at my earnestness, and when
thinking my speech too fervent she
, would hid me go hence and add an
! other wallflower to my already larKe
I bouquet. I would straightway return
and tell her of the court life and wove
I amid my imagery an odd mixture of
1 my New England home. Once, taking
her hand for a moment and looking
, Into her eyes. I said:
"Ah. Ellen. I love you well, and I

who knew you. and I would so guard

j Minuld ever come near you or to those

i nnd I knew she was thinkinsr of her
duty at the IMnes. "So go back to your

gold, or both, forget the simple colo
nial dame who more often plays the
part of dairymaid. And now." she
said, looking Into my eyes arid laugh
ing, "go and seel; out every maid over

And I would d' as bid and dance
Kon.e old time waltz with some lonely
maid and then return to Miss Ellen's
side only tc be sent away again to
some one who she noticed was not

announced, and I was made happy by
Miss Ellen, who chose me as her part

forming into line some one cried. "It
Is the hour for the wishing stone!"
and t.hen one and all. save mvself. for
bshoovss you to approach it rsv-
I did not know what was meant by
the wishing stone. Joined iu the clamor.
Miss Ellen yielded ut length, and, sllll
h'lldlnjf my hand and bidding me give
the other to the girl behind me, and so
on down the line, we started out of the
house through one of the deep, low
cut windows. We circled the porch,
crossed the gardens and passed down
the terrace. The moonlight filtering
through the trees glimmered brightly
on the colored frocks as we sped down
the cedar lace.
At leugth we emerged on an open
knoll in the center of which was an
old stone vuudial covered with ivy. We
formed a circle round It. and Miss El
len, letting go my hand, stood on a step
( tiy its ide and. calling one after in
; other by name, bade euoh lay his or her
, hand on the bare surface of the toue
where the Ivy hi.. I beeu cut away aud

have thought we were a band of se
iret plotters taking the oath of allegi-un.-e
on a t.mb. It was lo Jesting mat
ter. I could see. for each one in that
gay party approached the stoue in si
lence and revereuce. The only sound
, that broke the stillness wan that of
, Miss Ellen's voice as she cnlied each

eoiicl. a !!ffl more gently than the
' others, 1 thought, aud M.sa L.leu. Sue-

motioned me to stop,
j "And now. Mr. Palmer." I heard her
saying, "as a stranger to the wishing
' stone it behooves you to approach it
j reverently. There Is uo reason to tell
; the others this, for they know the
I legend and Its secret charms, but to

! they were wed. He enjoined his sou i
j to seek this spot before wooing the wo-
; nu n of their choice, and it is a strnnsa
i fatality that all our family who have

legend which. clings about this ivy col- !

a prayer that it unijlit hrnl favor with

for we strolled back somewhat slowet
than the others.
"What did you wish?" I risked, but
she only shook tier bead a id said she
could not tell.
"I wished that you" I pot no fur
ther, for she pave a startled cry that
clic ked nie before ! could finish the
"Iion't oh. don't!" Fhe said. "You
have already said too much. I ought
to have told you not to tell your wish,
for if you do the fates become perverse
and mock you. If you even hint of
what you have asked in secret some
thing will happen to mar its complete
fullillment. I am sorry you spoke
about it at all," nnd I thought her face
grew a little paler.
I dared not speak again, and we
walked on In siiem e and joined the
otlurs in l!i old oakcu dining room.
Mr. I.amb asked the blessing, and the
Kills sat down, while the men waited
on them and brought them supper.
After a merrv hour we danced again
and the incident of the wishing stone her honest father and manly brother,
was soon forgotten i;i the fr. .lie of the j Tlie uames and the locality were con

lie fore I could reach her side.
Impulse was to throw mvself
f.eet and pour out my love to her. she
glided swiftly up the stairs
Within the next week I received a
copy of the paper with my letter in It.
prominently j laced on the first page.
and a note in the same mail from the
editor congratulating nie on the excel
lence of It. He told me to send one or
two more from Georgia and then to
push on and write up the bayou coun
ties in Louisiana. He liked the dia
logues and suggested that I give more
interviews with the farmers. 1 read
my letter in print, and it again struck
nie that I had not made It clear to my
conservative readers that it was to the
sons of the antebellum, slaveholding
families that the south had to look for
its regeneration and renewed prosper
ity; that it was this element which
was rebuilding the fortunes In that
section and not the few men from the
north who had gone there to invest
money. If 1 dared to draw a picture I
of the P.uds and the Ellens of the
south how the people of the old com
monwealth would read the future of
this sunny land and appreciate the
struggle of Its younger generation to
overcome the obstacles wbicb they bad
inherited in consequence of war!
A fine sense of honor had kept me
from making use of the life at the
Pines as a basis for a letter, but I
longed to handle the subject as I saw
it and to make others see it through
my eyes and appreciate Its beauty.
Shut in my room away from the Influ
ence of Miss Ellen, of P.ud and even
of the colonel. I argued that such a
letter could do no harm and might in
duce to much good. I do not hide from
myself even now that there was with
me a certain satisfaction In pleasing
those I . the home otliee. nor did I cou
ceal from myself thPti the additional
prestige such a letter might give me
with my critics. The editor had com
plimented me on the first letter. What
would he not do when he received one
written with a pen pnided by love and
every word of It toi:rei from the
heart? If Miss Ellen loved me. I ar
gued, she would only rejoice with nut
over my success. And then. too. she
might not see it. This last thought
brought a blush to my 'cheek, and I
started up. determined to show her
my letter and tell her what 1 coutem
Vhat evil genius led me to change
my mind I do not know. It might
have been the fates of the wishing
stone whom 1 had angered by partial
ly revealing the secret I had confided
to them. Hut at the time I was pleased
to think it was a confidence I bnd no
right to give her until 1 had told her
of my love. Then. too. if I. who was j
as jealous of the family honor as Bud
or eveu the colonel imse!fr.saw uo
impropriety in making use of their
heroic struggle with misfortunes, sure
ly there could be none. I thought.
When I should have toid her of my
love, together we would talk over these
hard times, nnd together we would read
my description of them uud laugh
over it, or possibly cry. for It was al
ways the pathos of the life at the
Pines which I saw and not the humor.
When a woman loves she always un
derstands. I said to myself, but 1 did
not know then how sensitive tiiese old
families had become of criticism nor
how deeply they felt their changed
conditions. I hail only seen their forti
tude and bravery, for they would have
thought it beneath them to complain of
their poverty to others.
T'nless 1 wrote some such letter,
which would afford ine a reasonable
excuse for remaining another fortnight
at the Pines. I would have to leave in
a day or two at the longest, for the sug
gestion of the managing editor was
nothing less than a politely worded or
made up. I
myself into this belief,
no longer. My mind once
was seized with a fever to
as I had not known since
the first days of my career iu journal
ism. Taking out my writing pad and
throwing 1113'self across the bed. I
wrote with uu enthusiasm I had sel
dom experienced. Jf one has not felt
this feverish desire to write he or she
cannot appreciate the feelings which
prompted me to hold up every detail
us 1 saw it and to lend it color where
color might be lacking. Loving Miss
Ellen with a passion that absorbed me
then, I described her as a holy priest
might paint the Madonna whom he
worshiped and with the accuracy
, with which the artist might put upon
j the canvas the features of his wife and
! My blood ran more rapidly through
my veins as I sketched Miss Ellen in
bold relief and as faithfully described
donna. One who had known the art
ist aud his model would see In the
wrap of the Madonna a shawl the wife
had worn for a score of years in the
humble neighborhood and In the in
fant Christ the idealized features of
the model's child. When describing
Miss Ellen and her family 1 felt in
spired and uplifted and left notbiug
much more material about Oglethore
w hich I thought could le used to ad
vantage. So highly did I think of
what I had written that I felt reason
ably certain l.e would make no objec
tions to my plans, and in another two
weeks I hoped to have secured Miss
Ellon's consent to become my wife.
She seemed to know by intuition
what was iu my heart and what I bad
a mind to do. for she avoided leitig
alone with me. and whenevec we
would walk after that she would ask
