Obscurity of the Day: Mr. Stub
Here's the other temporary Sunday strip I mentioned in yesterday's post. Mr. Stub, aka Stub, aka Stubbs, ran April 20 - June 8 1913 in the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The cartoonist is Caine, who occasionally went by the nickname "Empty" Caine (M.T. Caine perhaps?). His cartoons were a constant feature of the Pioneer Press in the teens. I've never found his full name.
