The Harrison Bros.' Minstrel show,
which made Hazelton Wednesday eve
ning, has the distinction of being the
only one to exhibit here for some time
without a lot of fault-flnding critics
picking its attractions to pieces after
ward. A negro minstrel show is in a
class by Itself; and a good one never
falls to please an audience where
laughter and amusement are sought.
The negro has an ear for music; it
is natural wth him; and he has his
way of rendering it. It Is not classi
cal, but It is better It is pleasing.
The Dixie Minstrels on Wednesday
night gave a good entertainment one
well worth the price, and the audi
ence got its satisfaction of negro mel
ody and laughter. Hazelton Herold.
