Officer Finds Interesting 'Pet'

Sept. 4, 1909, J.P. Burns

Sept. 4, 1909: Times artist Edmund Waller "Ted" Gale draws J.P. Burns. Note Miss Los Angeles. In later cartoons, Gale drew her like this:

March 19, 1933, Miss Los Angeles

March 19, 1933: "Fair and Hot Under the Collar."

Sept. 4, 1909, Gila Monster
A police officer finds an interesting animal on his beat at 5th and Los Angeles streets and sells it to an Asian doctor, not realizing that it was poisonous ... Speaking of found objects, the police would like to hear from the owner of a splendid artificial leg. Evidently, the man used his peg leg during the week and kept his "cork leg" for Sundays.
