Herriman Saturday

Wednesday, June 24 1908 -- Herriman has been on vacation for two weeks, and would continue on vacation for an additional week before appearing regularly again. Oddly, though, this cartoon snuck in right smack in the middle of what I presume was his time off.

Tag Day was a program of Associated Charities. On that day, vendors would offer official charity tags for sale, and purchasers were to affix their purchased tags to themselves to show that they gave to the charity. A pretty effective technique to shame slackers into coughing up some dough when most people are walking around with tags displayed.
