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?

Hello Allan-
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.
