One day, while the husband is at his office, the nurse informs the wife that their baby is blind. Not wanting to break the awful news to her husband, the wife writes for an eye specialist to come at once, telling him that her husband must not know of his coming. But before the doctor arrives, the husband comes home and finds his wife in tears. He is informed that nothing is wrong: but his suspicions are aroused when his wife receives a letter from the specialist, which she will not show to him. He goes out and upon returning, hears his wife say to someone over the telephone, "Can you come now. while my husband is away?" He goes, greatly depressed, into his study. Half an hour later he returns to where his wife and the specialist are and sees his wife's arms around the man's neck, begging for he knows not what. He is about to shoot both when his wife, with a hysterical cry, throws her arms around him because her little one can now see. Written by
