Burns, (Little) Ella

Little Ella Burns is Little Ella Burns no more, the Judge having decided that she must bear the name given to her by her “parents” in baptism, viz: Eva Bell Whiton, and must also go to school, and not appear upon the stage until she is a big, big woman, when she may not want to.  Cruel Judge, not to bear in mind the invitation of Bro. March, of the Marsh Troupe, who says: “Suffer little children to come unto me!”
