Bonus Funny - A True Son of the Soil (1904)

A True Son of the Soil
Life Magazine, July 28, 1904

Pouring through the old magazines this morning I came across a little tribute to the Hoosier poet, James Whitcomb Riley, and wanted to get it posted. This illustration comes from the July 28, 1904 issue of Life Magazine and I did a little looking for anything Riley corresponding to that year, but came up empty. In 1905 Riley published Little Orphan Annie and the next closest publications are Rhymes of Childhood in 1890 and Knee Deep in June in 1912.
