"Of Course, Ladies First," Said Mr. Harris, and Stayed on Board
---
George Brayton, an asphalt manufacturer of Los Angeles, who was on the Titanic, last night gave an account of the parting of Henry B. Harris and his wife. He said:

"Mr. and Mrs. Harrid spproached the lifeboats arm in arm. As they were about to enter them, an officer said:

"'Ladies first, please!'

"Mr. Harris bowed and smiled, saying:

"'Of course, certainly, ladies first.'

"After bidding his wife farewell, Mr. Harris mingled with the other passengers who remained on board."
