Kelly's Kindergarten: December 4 1898
Teacher #3 looks like a real pushover to me. I predict a trip the emergency room is in his near future.
By the way, surely yesterday someone identified the masthead cartoons as the work of George B. Luks?
The chilly reception the kids give their latest temporary teacher is characterized as a "Klondike greeting", because this was also the time of the Yukon gold rush. Klondike was a hot new word, or even a concept, and would be referenced constantly in popular media, quite a lot in comic sections, for instance.
