Saturday, October 2 1908 -- I think that the vignette on the lower right may be a reference to actor William Desmond, who appeared in many films in the 1910s. In 1908 he was, I gather, a local thespian of some note. What the reference to the trip around the world means, I dunno.We will see more on this subject from Herriman.
The other vignettes are about boxer Jim Barry's bout against Battling Johnson tonight. Barry will win the fight on a TKO.
