Miss Scoopem is a reporter for The Daily Smudge who has a nose for news, unfortunately she tends to pick up the wrong scent more often than not. The creator is Charles H. Wellington, who you may remember from Dreamy Dave. Given these appeared in 1906, the fact that Miss Scoopem starred in her own strip and was the butt of jokes based on her bumbling personality as opposed to strictly her sex makes this one seem a bit progressive (though there are some decidedly non-progressive elements at play too).
