Didn’t Have Ten Dollars
by C. J. Taylor (1892)
Weary Raggles.—What became of your friend, Frayed Keegan?
Tomato Canby.—He is doing the Robinson Crusoe act.
Weary Raggles.—What is that?
Tomato Canby.—Gone to live on the “Island.”
Lazy Curator™ sez: I could swear that Weary Raggles is a recurring character. I really don’t feel like sifting through the five year backlog of Weekly Puck entries to find his previous appearance, but I would not at all be surprised to learn that Taylor is pilfering from Samuel Ehrhart. I could have sworn that “funny tramp names” was his “thing.”
