Bright flowers for Mothers living. Next Sunday throughout the Unit ed States, men and women will wear white carnations or some other flow er in rememberance of their mothers. In accordance with Governor Burke's proclamation, "Mother's Day," will be observed throughout North Dakota today, this state joining with other states of the Union. The custom of observing "Mother's Day," was commenced in 1908, and is now observed in every section of the county. The idea of observing such a day was first conceived by Miss Anna Jarvis, 2031 North Twelfth street. Philadelphia, who said she wanted to accommodate the anniver sary of her mother's death. She said it was not simply the placing of some flowers on the mother's grave, but she believed that it would be a splen did thing if young men and women throughout the country would Join in commemorating such a day, whether their mothers were living or dead. Miss Jarvis suggested the wearing of a white carnation in honor of the mothers, and this was generally ac cepted, although now the white flow er is used in honor of the mothers who have died and a bright flower to honor those who are living. Aside from wearing a white flower young men and women who are away from home often commemorate the day by writing a special letter to their mothers. Next Sunday the day will be ob served in the churches, and, aside from the music, the pastors will preach appropriate sermons.

Concerning the new building to be erected in thiscity, Manager J. L. Carterof of the Fargo branch said: "It is absolutely certain that the Standard Oil company will build in Bismarck this year.
