Zawetowski children

“The Wren is a very little bird” and the Wren juveniles are in a corresponding ratio, very little children; but they perform some pieces in a manner worthy the emulation of “older heads.”  These little people, together with the Zawetowski children, have been on exhibition at Barnum’s for several weeks past, and, until the past week, have drawn very little audiences notwithstanding the extra attractions of big snakes, rhinoceroses, elephants and other juvenile curiosities.  It is really worth a quarter to see these little ones (not the elephants) perform, whether you are an admirer of prodigies or not.
