Kelly's Kids: April 30 1899
An almost full page extravaganza for the Kelly Kids, and now Li Kellie, who has been featured a few times, is paired with the Green Kid.
In this sample page we see a McDougall editorial cartoon mocking Boss Croker of Tammany Hall, whom I will assume meant little to St. Louis readers. But the Post-Dispatch got their section was from the parent paper, the New York World, unaltered save for the Masthead and the name cut from the pageheads.
As Pulitzer didn't have a newspaper chain, I've always wondered what their first client paper might've been, or, where the third Pulitzer comic section might've been.
