Query: Identify source of a Yiddish playlet

Sometime in the 1920s in Buenos Aires Nehemias Zucker directed/produced a playlet in Yiddish based on a short story(?) by Mark Twain. The Yiddish title is ״דער רעדאקטאר״. The source of this query is a Argentinian Yiddish thetater poster.

I am wondering if is based on the  Mark Twain short story  "Nicodemus Dodge -- printer"? Something else?

Any help that can be offered is greatly appreciated.
