Many of Our Citizens Wore a White
Sunday was Mothers’ Day.
The object of setting apart one
day each year to be designated
as Mothers’ Day, is to honor the
mothers of the country, each
man wearing a white flower,
preferably a white carnation, in
honor of his mother.
The movement started i n
Pennsylvania in a little church,
which was attended by an old
lady whom everyone called
mother. When the old lady
died a special service was held
in the church on Sunday in her
honor and it was mem
ory of her, Mother Sunday. A
young lady, Miss Anna Jarvis,
now of Philadelphia, was then
attending that church, and she
conceived the idea of having
one Sunday in each year to be
called Mothers’ Sunday in hon
or of all the mothers of the
Last year was the first gener
al observance of the day. Xo
proclamation was issued byGov
ernor Sheldon last year because
he was in California at the time
and the acting governor of Xe
braska did not issue it. But
this year Gov. Shallenberger
issued the proclamation and
many at this place were seen
wearing a pure white carnation
in honor of mother. It is a
grand move, God bless the
mothers of our country.
