Washington, D. C., Sept. 27.—Major Archie Butt aide to President Taft, and formerly Washington correspondent of the Nashville Banner, is celebrating his forty-fifth birthday. While the Major is really 45, he does not look it—does not look any older, in fact than when he came to Washington years ago after graduating at Sewanee, Tenn., and entered upon a journalistic career, Maj. Butt served three years in the Philippines in the Spanish American war and was aide to President Roosevelt, as well as to President Taft. He is the most traveled gent in Washington, in all probability. He traveled some 20,000 miles with Roosevelt, more than that with President Taft, and is still going. Maj. Butt also holds the record of being the leading lightning change artist in the employ of Uncle Sam. The other day at Beverly, he rode six miles and back in an automobile and change his clothes twice in thirty minutes.
