Crumbling Paper: Glad Rags, the Corpulent Tramp and How Would You Like to Be John?

Here’s an example I scanned of Glad Rags, the Corpulent Tramp by William F. Marriner and How Would You Like To Be John? by an unknown artist from 1905. Can anyone out there identify the artist of the John strip? If so, please let us know in the comments. Omne-bo-point?

UPDATE: Cole Johnson identified the artist of How Would You Like To Be John? as J.A. Lemon. Thanks, Cole!
