In the Land of Cotton

After playing around some time Eddie Leonard is at the Colonial this week with his spectacular minstrel number, carrying about 28 colored people, and the Ward Brothers, who are jointly featured with him.
The settings are pretty, and Leonard sings and dances to the evident pleasure of the house. During the spells in “one” there is dancing by the colored men, also the Ward boys take a turn.
Leonard's peculiar rolling of his notes while singing especially caught the fancy of the audience, and there is no question of the approval extended to the offering at the Colonial.
They dance well, although singing “A Hammock Built for Two” in weak voice. At the closing tey have a dance alone once more, and while this brings considerable applause, it is too long.
