A Suggestion for McKinley Day

     For the observance of McKinley’s birthday on Monday, Jan. 29, it is suggested that florists everywhere throughout the country might make good publicity for themselves through the decorating of statues and memorials to the martyred president in the various cities. Civic organizations and others interested in the observance of the day can be easily attracted to this form of commemoration. Another hint which might prove of value would be the placing of a statuette of McKinley in the shop window, properly decorated with a wreath, etc. These efforts will undoubtedly act as reminders of the day. Carnations have for several years been designated as the flowers significant of McKinley’s birthday, and display cards should be gotten out and the sales of Carnations pushed.
