Additional Editorials

     The movement inaugurated by the Carnation League of America to commemorate the death of President McKinley by having the people of the country wear a carnation on the day of his birth and of his death, seems to be meeting with general favor, as seen in the fact that on Jan. 29, Mr. McKinley’s birthday, thousands of people wore the flower. The carnation was Mr. McKinley’s favorite flower, and almost invariably adorned the buttonhole in the left lapel of his coat.
