Herriman Saturday

Tuesday, November 26 1907 -- In the oughts and teens, humorous news stories were often accompanied by spot illustrations by a newspaper's resident cartoonist, but this example represents sort of a turnabout. This cartoon appeared on the Examiner's editorial page and the news story gets just a few lines while Herriman's work is presented extravagantly large. When I came upon this one I thought I smelled the birth of a new Herriman series, but that turned out not to be the case.
