The M’Kinley Carnation

 

BEAUTIFUL FLOWER NAMED FOR THE LATE PRESIDENT AFTER A CONTEST.

     Kansas City, Nov. 21.—“The McKinley Carnation” contest was the attraction to-day at the flower show at Convention Hall, and the prize of $100 offered for the most nearly perfect specimen of the pink carnation, the favorite flower of the late President McKinley, was awarded to E. T. Graves, of Richmond, Ind. The bloom, with much ceremony, was then formally named “The McKinley.” Describing the winning carnation Mr. Graves said:
     “It is a hybrid. It has the blood of the Painted Lady. The color is brighter than that of the famous pink.”
