Marvelous Child Acrobats. Quite
a large audience greeted the Circo
Reinero in their initial performance
at Washington Park last night. All
who attended report the perform
ance quite good. The Landeros
acrobats, tumblers and balancers,
consisting of three girls and a boy,
all mere children, are little short
of marvelous. Some of the clever
stunts enacted by this quartette
would do credit to old and tried
performers many years their seniors.
Their fancy acrobatic work, head
and hand balancing and tumbling is
really, exceptionally fine . The
youngest member of the troupe, a
little girl about six years of age,
is a wonder at turning hand springs
and tumbling. Taken as a whole,
the circus is about the best that has
been seen in this city for some time.
