Holsington died tTuesdny, March 21, In his home at Newton, Kansas. The end came Sifter a brief illness which was not • r ••:: : '-.utslde' of his home town and the announcement ol his death was f\ great shock to countless friends throughout the State. And tlius passes from the activities of this life a widely known and very useful citizen, | a -very gallant gentleman, who will be mi*ed by those who knew hlm| as long as they live. Perry Milo Holsington was bom October 13, 1857, in St. Joseph county, Michigan;' He was of old English stock and the son of a brick manufacturer. His great, great grandfather fought in the Revolutionary w§tr. His gi-andfather at the age of ed .yt.ars enlisted in the 11th Mlch- " igan Infantry and served through the Civil war. His father was im• able to render militar>' duty because , of a crippled arm but five of his ; uncles, brothers of tills father, were Union soldiers. With this inheritance it was perhaps but natural that before he became of age P. M. Holsington should enlist in the Mfehigan National Guard. ^Vhen he ' came'to Kansas he immediately became identified with the Kansas National Guard and worked up through the grades from private to cofenel of the old Second Kansas ; Regiment. He was eager to participate in the war with Spain but volunteer regiments superseded the national guaic: and thus he and his 'troops were pt out of the conflict. ! HexommanatJ the regiment on the ;- Mexican bt-'^.er in 1916.; - When the i' World War came on he at once of• fertid himself to the country for f military service and at Fort Sill Y_ gav^ the 137th infantry its training as a part of ihe 35th Division. By .;- reason of a slight physical defect he S was' refused the honor he so greatly •'^ coveted of sailing with his regiment vji to France. Thus he was a colonel ,}( in two wars and yet was denied the U opportunity of leading his men in H battle in both, to his intense and ' lasting disappointment. But If he was denied engaging per. sonally in warfare he none the less hai;rendered his coimtry great mil" " Itary service because he spent 37 ' years in the national guard training • *" other men to be soldiers. His love • for military affairs led him to membership in the Knights Templar and '. ' theie also he. rendered conspicuous , service. He was grand cfjmmander ' J : of tile Kansas Commandery in 1900 ;: and he wrote a book on drills and cercimonies that was adopted as a ; guide for Knights Templar In Kan,\ sas and many other states. In the.: line of business activities V ; Colonel Holsington was president of |;. t}'.- -pirsc National Bank in Newton, *'rnd tCL 'retary and general, manager i of the Railroad Building, Loan and 'Savings association which he built up and firmly established in the ^confidence of the people of Kansas. p Cblonel Hoisinstpn lived the abun- .dant life, and many organizations 'and baases benefited from his gen- erqtis contributions and from his • waftn Interest and his wise counsel. ^ He was greatly Intereisted in the Ma- iisonio home at Wichita to .which he \ contributed a great deal of time and r constructive effort, and he was In- terfested also In the College of Eml porfa upon the Board of Trustees of which he served most helpfully for •tmany, many years.. Ipiavp known many fine men in -my life but I should place Perry M. iiol?ington in the front rank of the /.Very finest of them. For one thing •^e looked the part. Some two or three Inches above six feet in Jbeight and beautifully proportioned, Jie carried himself to the very end \<of his 75 years erect and graceful' •ifike the soldier he •was. He had a '•goi':,4 that went with his command­ ing figure and his air of authOTity. His mind functioned with swiftness and precision. His Judgment was well-balanced and his mental poise was never shaken by a sudden emergency, by the clamor of the crowd, or by the hysteria of exciting times. His moral coiurage was as conspicuous as his physical fearlessness. His loyalty to hjs family, to his friends, to his country, and to every great cause iwhich he espoused was so much a part of him'that all who knew him took it for granted. \ Col. Holsington lived to a ripe old age. And yet to those who associated with him even in his very latest days he never seemed old. His erect and stalwart body seemed to have the sturdy strength of middle age. His mind was. alert and keen. His interest In public aftairs and in the management of his private business suffered no abatement. He was of the breed that runs till it drops. A very gallant, knightly gentleman, dying as fearlessly as he lived, has crossed over the narrow sea that separates this world from another. How the trumpets must have sounded for him on the other side! '[ —c. F, a, THE FARM HOLIDAY MEETING. The small audience that assembled in Memorial Hnll on Tuesday must have been n disappointment to Mr. IMU O Reno, President of the Nn- tlontil Farm Holiday Association. He had driven several hundred miles, through part of a chilly night and part of a raw day to meet this engagement, and It could hardly have been less than disheartening to find facing him fewer than 200 people In a hall that will hold 2,800. And the speech Mr. Reno made must have been a disappointment to the audience and particularly to those who invited him to come. They invited him here, of course, with the thought that he would make an address which would present appealing and convincing arguments in support of the farm holiday idea and arouse enthusiasm for it. They must have been disappointed, therefore, when he made no reference to this subject until near the end of a rambling address which had become so tiresome i that many left the hall, and then touched upon it in little better than a casual way. He made no argument in support of the idea that by withholding their products from the markets farmers could force an advance in price, and he gave no assurance that the plan could be put into effective operation. The writer of this has talked with a number of farmers who attended the meeting and without exception they have said they found nothing ot importance in,his speech. Taken both together, the audience and the speech. It Is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the plan the Farm Holiday Association has proposed as a means of advancing the prices of farm products, does not appeal to the judgment of those most concerned as practical and feasible. There are nearly 3,000 farmers in Allen county. All of them want higher prices for their products. And yet the announcement that a speaker of national reputation would be in lola at a convenient hour in the afternoon to tell them how to get 'better prices,' brought not to exceed 100 (excluding women) of those farmers to Tola. What other conclusion can be reached than that the 2,900 who did not come, stayed away because they had no confidence in the plan? And if; 2,900 are against the-plan and only 100 for it (making the very doubtful assumption that those who attended the meeting all were for it) what possibility can there be that It can be effectually put into operation? The very essence of the plan is that it should have 100 per cent co-operation. 'What chance would it have with 3 per cent co-operation? Will 2,900 men take orders from ,100? The Register does not wish to be misunderstood. If this paper had the power over night to double the prices of farm products It certainly would do It. If It thought this farm holiday plan would advance farm prices it certainly would be for it. But it regards the plan as wholly impracticable, certain to fail in its main purpose and nearly as certain to do more harm than good. That this is the judgment of the overwhelming majority of the farmeris of Allen county seems to us to have been fully demonstrated by Tuesday's meeting. If there ever was a measure that should have been fully debated with ample opportunity to offer and discuss amendments. It was the new Roosevelt farm relief plan. "Yet the Democratic caucus ordered it to be brought onto the floor of the house under a rule which prohibited amendments and limited the debate to a few hours. Arid these are the same Democrats who used to protest against "gag rule" when the Republicans were In power. THE TOLA DAILY REGISTER. THURSDAY EVENING; MARCH 23.1938. TOLA.

A real Philip Nolan, however, was the first' American citizen to be killed in Texas. By authority of the governor of Louisiana, he took about twenty men and went into the adjoining' Spanish province to hunt wild horses for the Spanish soldiers at Orleans. 'When near the present city of Waco, March 22, 1801. the party was attacked without warning by Spanish soldiers from Chihuahua. Nolan and:part of his men were killed and the remainder never reached their homes. San Francisco—Fred McDonald's tonsils have won their long feud with Federal Judge Frank H. Kerrigan. Celebrated for frequent court non­ appearances, the tonsils were offered as witnesses by McIDonald yesterday In a note from a hospital. The court accepted the offer as prima facie evidence of innocence and declined to cross examine. , ' On three former occasions the attorney-owner of the tonsils made them his excuse for not being In court. The third time Judge Kerrigan accepted the plea, went to a ball game—and sat next to McDonald. 'Whereupon Hizzoner ruled out the tonsil excuses.
