New York, April 20. --- In the register of the Titanic's heroes the name of Robbins should appear. He was Colonel Astor's old butler, and like the Colonel's valet, always travelled with him. He is numbered among the Titanic's dead.
Faithful unto death was kitty, Colonel Astor's Airedale terrier and constant companion on land or sea. Kitty was never far from her master's heels, and the two were familiar figures on Fifith Avenue.
When the crash came, Robbins went below and brought kitty up on deck. There, the most faithful of friends, she stood beside her master, while the sea embraced them, and now she shares his grave.
