Here are Herriman's offerings for May 8 and 9 1907. He's still covering the big Shriner convention. What I find interesting in this whole series of cartoons is that George is having a lot of fun with dialect and wordplay, later a hallmark of his Krazy Kat.
The weird names all over the second cartoon (Zem Zem, Anezeh, Murats, etc.) are various local chapters of the Shriners. The ostrich business, on the other hand, I can't interpret.
