Hello jessica_22,

It is a standard feature of newspaper headlines in English to omit words like this. It is a way for editors to save space and fit more into the headline. Well spotted!

thanks sir !!

Dear Sir
PLease tell me:The stepmother made Esmerelda do all the house work.
In this statement the verb 'do' means 'to do'.
Thank you.
Best regards

Hello andrew international,

I'm not sure what you mean. The construction is 'make someone do something' - there is no need to add 'to' here, and it would be incorrect to do so. The meaning of 'do' and 'to do' is essentially the same; whether or not to include 'to' depends only on the particular verb before it.
