Is that someone who cleans out the stable?
Or perhaps a muckraker?
The muckrakers were reform-minded journalists in the Progressive Era in the United States (1890s–1920s) who exposed established institutions and leaders as corrupt. They typically had large audiences in popular magazines.
So. a muckraker might''ve been a 1920's card ...
Mucker means a mate or friend. I expect it comes from mucking in together - someone who mucks in (that is, helps out, particularly with difficult or dirty tasks) is a "mucker".
