Later Bud and I rode horseback. He took me to see the camping ground of General Sherman, which Miss Ellen had point ed out to me the night of my arrival, and from there we took a circuitous route home. He told me many of the difficulties of farming in the county. We passed a number of farmers, and from each 1 learned something and stored up in my mind many a quaint anecdote for my letters from these simple country folk. One time when Bud had ridden forward to consult some one about getting extra hands 1 rode up to a stolid looking individual whom I saw sitting on a rail fence near by whittling stick. His beard and hair wore unkempt, and his whole attitude was one of supreme Indiffer ence to his surroundings. "Good morning." I said. "Same to you," he answered without looking up to see who had addressed him. "How are your crops this year?" I asked. "Poor," was his monosyllabic reply. "Good last year?" "Nup," with maddening Indifference. "I hope your crops will be better next year," I ventured again. "Doubt It," wns all he would answer. The field back of him did not look en couraging. Despairing finally of get ting any information from him, I drew rein, preparing to join Bud, adding, however, before leaving: "Well, that's too bad." With sudden animation he stopped whittling for a moment to look up and remark: 'Tain't as bad as you think, my friend. I don't own this land." I rode off, laughing at this quaint conception of the value of land. He had not Intended to be either witty or humorous, but was sincere in trying to disabuse my mind of a false impres sion I might have of the extent of his troubles. When Bud rode up he ex plained to me that the man farmed only on shares and had be owned the land he would have been held respon sible for the interest on the mortgage. Indeed, be said that to own certain of the land around that section was re garded as a calamity. That ride with Bud gave me much material for a letter, and when I went to my room I wrote until after mid night I touched only on the general condition of the planters and petty farmers and made use of such apt com ments as I had chanced to pick up away from the Pines. I read and re read my letter to make sure It could not be traced to Oglethorpe or Its im mediate vicinity. I was satisfied that It would describe many of the older counties in the state but looking back BISMABCK DAILY TRIBUNE. SIDES of9i£ SHIEL HAJOtO ^^ARCHIBALD W. BUT [Copyright, 1905, by J. B. Lippineett company. All rights reserved.] PRESIDENT TAFT'S TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO MAJOR ARCHIBALD W. BUTT. Major Archibald W Butt was ono of ths heroes of tho Titanic Hs was President Taft's military aid. Aftor Major Butt's dsath tho prssidsnt, with tsars in his oyos and faltering voioo, mads him tho subjset of ono of ths most hsartfolt sulog its svsr pronouneod ovor a gallant man, praising his manhood, his eourags, his loyalty, his sslf sacrifice. "Everybody know Archis as 'Arohie,'" said tho prssidsnt "I eannot go into a box at a theatsr, I cannot turn around in my room, I cannot go anywhere, without expecting to see his smiling face or to hear his cheerful voios in greeting. Ths life of the preeident is rather isolated, and these appointed to live with him come much closer to him than any one else. The bond is vsry close, and It is difficult to spsak on suoh an occasion. "Archie Butt's character waa simple, straightforward and inoapabls of intrigue. A clear sense of humor light* ened hie life and those about him. Life was not for him a troubled problem. He wae a soldisr, and, when hs was appointsd to serve undsr anothsr, to that other he rendered Implicit loyalty. I never knew a man who had so much sslf abnegation, so much self sacrifice, as Arohie Butt. "Occasions like the sinking of the Titanic frequently develop unforessen traits in msn. It makss them hsreea when you don't expect it. But with Archie it wae just as natural for him to hslp those about him ae it wae for him to ask ms to permit him to do something for eome one for me. "He was on ths dsck of ths Titanio exaotly what he was everywhere. He leaves a void with those who loved him, but the circumstances of hia going are all that we would have had, and, while tears fill the eyes and the voice is choksd, ws srs felicitated by the memory of what hs was." Before entering upon military life Major Butt displayed high literary ability. The best of his stories la "Both 8idee of tho Shield," a eplondidly written romanoe of love and war. But my work for that week was done, and I arose the next morning with the feeling that I could do with my time as 1 wished without trying to remember incidents or conversations which might make interesting reading matter in Boston. I rorle to the sta tion and mailed my letter, and on my return I found Miss Ellen engaged, as she said, in putting the house to rights, "For if we leave all until the Inst day, very little will be done." she said, and so I spent the day leudiug a hand hero or lifting a piece of furniture there. Miss Ellen mended many an old lace curtain that day, while I would sit, pipe in mouth, watching her fingers move backward and forward and keep ing my eyes on her face when her own were fixed on the work in tier lap. 1 was on the point several times of tell ing her why 1 had come south, to con fess that there wns no kinship possibly with the Kentucky I'a liners, but after several efforts, which really got no fur ther than planning them, I would fore go all determination to play 6 strictly honorable role, and then, too, I feared It might put Colonel Turpln In a false position as well as myself, or so I chose then to think. That evening Miss Ellen played more beautifully than I had ever heard ber play before, and she sang some old time melodies for us too. Her voice was sweet, and she sane simply and without effort Before bed time we had gathered around the piano and sung glees, even the colonel remem bering enough from his old Princeton days to lend discord occasionally. It was an uneventful but happy day, and It swept me many leagues nearer to the goal to which I had been drifting unconsciously siuee the tirst minute I had seen Miss Ellen and looked into Don't Be Foolish, Scoop, There's No Such Person by "HOP" now, ft seems tt me that I was too plenty of blackbirds, but we scorned general In my deductions and that the shooting these, though I was told they Illustrations, while unique, did not give a proper conception either of the man ners of the people or of the conditions of the country save in the exceptional case. But 1 bad been trained to look for the exception, I fear, which I think is the main fault of all young people who have a pen put into their hands, who are prone to point out the ridicu lous side of life instead of seeing the manhood and the strength which often underlie conditions, no matter how strange they may appear at first make a good pie, which is a favorite dish with the colored hands on the farms. I saw something of each mem ber of the party during the day and With Them to the Lodge. found them all. to a greater or less degree, in love with Miss Ellen. Jim gave me mueti information about the others, but added: "She Just laughs at them all and won't even let them pay her compli ments as they do to the other girls." "And you?" I said. "Oh, me! She would not even look at me," said the manly young fellow, looking me squarely In the face, not ashamed to confess the hopelessness of bis love. I made up ray mind that if in way to do Jim a a her honest brown eyes g0CMj matter how my own suit The next morning some of the came out, for I was now Intent upon young men of the county, Bud's winning Miss Ellen, 1 would do it. for friends, came for me to go bunting hjg open and honest confession. with them. I got into some of Bud's hunting togs and with his gun on my shoulder rode with them to the hunt ing lodge, from which point we scour ed the country for many miles that day. The sport was new to me on ac count of the game we found. I had Indifferent luck, however, though the others rilled their bags with plover, robins, doves and larks. There were We were a happy party as we lunched at the lodge. We barbecued our robins and some of the doves on little spits over a charcoal fire and stewed some with rice. We code home early, however, more to see Miss Ellen, I think, than for any other rea son. Each would have left all bis game at her feet but she would not have it so, but said she would take what I brad killed in part payment for my board, which innocent remark brought a deep flush to uiy cheek, re membering, as I did, my unhappy mistake when I first arrived at the Pines. We described our sport, and 6he showed interest in everything we said and all we had done. Presently, looking at the sun. she exclaimed: "Come go home, you boys, for I am not going to ask you to stay to dinner, and be here early Thursday morning or 1 will not dance with any of you al the party." It took them but a few minutes to get their horses and disap pear down the road. "And you, sir." she said, turning to me as we lost sight of the others— "what are you going to do in the way of reparation now that you nud your friends have put me hnck in my work?" "Set the table and bring the wood," I cried. "Come you shall set the table, for the wood has been brought in already." I followed to the dining room, where she threw me the tablecloth. "Be careful," she laughed, "for It will not bear rough handling, though 1 dare say father would tell you that It has lasted since General Oglethorpe breakfasted off It and therefore will last after we are dead."
