Demetrius E. Butts
Band, 42nd ILL. Infantry and Co. E, 17th ILL. Cavalry
Portrait and Biological Record of Southeastern Kansas, Containing Biographical Sketches of Prominent and Representative Citizens of the Counties, Together with Biographies and Portraits of all the Presidents of the United States and The Governors of the State of Kansas. Chicago, Biographical Publishing Co. 1894.
Demetrius E. Butts. New York has contributed to Kansas many of the best citizens now residing in the Sunflower State, but she has contributed none more worthy of respect than the gentleman whose name introduces this sketch, and who is the present Sheriff of Miami County. A man of great industry, undoubted integrity, and more than ordinary business capacity, he has while developing his farm and making a home, unconsciously made for hims
elf a name and character that are to-day known and read of all men. As a farmer, he is thorough and practical in all his improvements, buildings and surroundings, and it has always been his aim to make them harmonious with his own taste and that of his family. As an official, he has discharged the duties and obligations of his office
in a manner eminently satisfactory to the people.
The father of our subject, J. D. Butts, was a native of Otsego County, N. Y., and the son of a soldier in the War of 1812, and probably also in the Revolution. The marriage of J. D. Butts united him with Miss Lucinda Furbush, who was born in Massachusetts, and removed thence to Otsego County, N. Y. For a time he engaged in farming, and later conducted a flourishing business as a manufacturer of furniture
. In 1853 he removed to DeKalb County, Ill., where he engaged in the grain and lumber business until the opening of the Civil War.
As Captain of Company K, Forty-second Illinois Infantry, J. D. Butts went to the front at the breaking out of the war. Later he commanded Company C, Seventeenth Illinois Cavalry, after which he was made Major of the same regiment, which position he held when discharged in 1866. He returned to DeKalb County, and resided there until 1873, when he was appointed Assistant State Grain Inspector at Chicago. He made his home in that city until his death in 1881. Politically, he was a successful business man, whose abilities gained for him the respect of his associates. His wife passed from the earth in 1891. They were the parents of five children, four of whom are now living.
Born in Otsego County, N. Y., February 21, 1844, the subject of this sketch was a mere child when he accompanied the family to DeKalb County, Ill. He received his education in the common schools of the county, and grew to manhood upon his father’s farm. On the 22d of January, 1861, he enlisted in the regimental band of the Forty-second Illinois Infantry, being at that time in his seventeenth year. In 1862 the band was mustered out of service. In September of the ensuing year he enlisted as a member of Company E, Seventeenth Illinois Cavalry, in which he served until the close of the war, winning by his gallantry and meritorious conduct the rank of First Lieutenant. On the 27th of December, 1865, he was mustered out of the service.
Returning to Illinois, Mr. Butts continued to reside in DeKalb County until September, 1866, when he went to Riley County, Kan., and there engaged in the milling business. In 1870 he removed to Butler County, where he erected the second sawmill in the county. After one and one-half years spent there, he disposed of the mill and returned to DeKalb County, Ill., where he remained for one year. The year 1873 witnessed his arrival in Miami County, and locating in Osawatomie, he purchased land and engaged in farming and stock-raising. He lived for a time on his farm, and in February, 1890, returned to Osawatomie. In 1891 he was elected Sheriff of Miami County, and re-elected in 1893 by a large plurality, since which time he has resided in Paola.
In 1864 Mr. Butts was united in marriage with Miss Theodosia, daughter of J. H. Wagner. They are the parents of three children: Arthur E, who resides at Ionia, Mich.; Jessie, Mrs. Jesse Wells who resides on a farm belonging to her father; and Henry W., who has a clerical position in Paola. A Republican in politics, Mr. Butts has served in other positions besides that of Sheriff. For three terms
he was Trustee of Osawatomie Township, of which he was also Enumerator. He has been and is still an active worker in the ranks of the Republican party. Socially, he is connected with the Masonic fraternity, Eastern Star, the Knight of Pythias, the Sons of Veterans and Grand Army of the Republic.
The real-estate possessions of Mr. Butts include some valuable property in Osawatomie, in addition to a farm comprising two hundred and eighty-three acres in Osawatomie Township. A man of enterprise, he is ever ready to extend his assistance in all matters of public interest, and has contributed not a little to the advancement of the county. While prominent

The Model 3107 chair is one of the most popular chairs in Danish design history. It was designed by Arne Jacobsen, using a new technique in which plywood could be bent in two dimensions. It has been produced exclusively by Fritz Hansen A/S ever since its invention in 1955. It is also the most copied chair in the world.
Being a "copy" itself contributes some irony to that fact. The chair, along with the Jacobsen's Ant chair, was, according to Jacobsen himself, inspired by a chair made by the husband and wife design team of Charles and Ray Eames.
The chair comes with a number of different undercarriges - both as a regular four-legged chair, an office-chair with five wheels and as a barstool. It comes with armrests, a writing-table attached, and different forms of upholstring. To some extent, these additions mar the simple aesthetics of the chair, while contributing with some practical elements.
Arne Jacobsen is the Danish architect who mastered the most personal and successful interpretation of the international functionalism. His architecture includes a considerable number of epoch-making buildings in Denmark, Germany and Great Britain. Arne Jacobsen initially trained as a mason before studying architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts, Copenhagen, graduating in 1927.
From 1927 until 1930, he worked in the architectural office of Paul Holsoe. In 1930, he established his own design office, which he headed until his death in 1971, and worked independently as an architect, interior, furniture, textile and ceramics designer. He was professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy of Arts, Copenhagen, from 1956 onwards. His best known projects are St. Catherine's College, Oxford, and the SAS Hotel, Copenhagen.
Arne Jacobsen's designs came into existence as brief sketches and were then modeled in plaster or cardboard in full size. He kept on working until his revolutionary ideas for new furniture had been realized at the utmost perfection. The "Ant" from 1952 became the starting point of his world fame as a furniture designer and became the first of a number of lightweight chairs with seat and back in one piece of moulded wood.
