Poppy Day to be Observed Here Saturday, May 25th

Poppy Day, will be observed in Farnam, on May 25, when little red poppies will be distributed on the streets, and worn in honor of the World War dead. The poppies distributed by the local Legion were made in the Veteran's hospital at Lincoln by disabled veterans, which is a means of providing employment for them, to support themselves and their families. In exchange for the poppies each person is asked to contribute for the welfare of the veterans.
