Five days more! Only five more days says the physician, and the man who has for so long a time been totally blind will be able to take off the bandage, and have the great, light world before him! He is sitting at home, his pretty daughter reading to him, and he is contemplating the glories of the earth and when he will be able to gaze upon them. Soon she leaves him for a moment, and, overcome by curiosity, he dares to raise the bandage a tiny, tiny little. He is amazed! He claps his hands in joy! He can see! But in this happy hour he remembers the admonishment of the doctor, not to remove the bandage for five days, and he replaces it. It happens that about this time a burglar singles the house out for his attentions, and has just entered the parlor when he hears the sound of approaching footsteps and conceals himself. It is the blind man's daughter. She is not sure that she has heard somebody moving about, but enters the room fearlessly, chiding herself that it is only her imagination...
