Caught me out! And -- for the edification of future readers -- in addition to conj. and prep., "but" can also be or 'be used as':
  • a noun "I'll take no but as an answer"
  • a pronoun "no one but has his fault..." (or, depending on your ed. of Shakespeare, "nobody but..."
  • an adverb "That's but a little tree."
