There is
a silence that is eloquent. The voices of God in the animal
world. Instincts are revelators. For him who hath ears to
hear the days utter speech and the nights show knowledge.
Nature has not concealed the folly of iniquity. Nature
publishes the wisdom of right living.

GOD'S SILENCE AND HIS VOICES ALSOBy Newell Dwight HillisIn the great unfolding which is going on, God expands Himself and develops Himself History is the great revelation of Him. While God acts with greatest force and most fruit upon minds that are enlarged and unfolded, so that there is a nu^or inspiration arising from the character of the persons inspired, there is also a mincK' inspiration, or the mind of God acting upon everything that lives, having reason and moral sensibility. That inspiration of God is the leaven of the ages. It is the secret feeling that has been working in men, and through them working out into experiment and endeavor, on some sides with disaster, and on some sides with success, and that through the sole medium of experiment through myriads of ages has attained to relative perfectness of social usage, of wise l^^lation, of successful civil government, or organized and progressive industries throughout the world. All these elements are divine. They are from God. They are work-ing along that great line, by which men are to be brought  back to God. . . . Whatever thoughts of God, coming into the souls of men, are unfolded in conduct and echoed and re-echoed until they become general truths, and whatever works toward plenitude of truth and purity and peace and joy — all

The clouds that wrap the mountains about with mystery interpret nature's 139 140 God's Silence tendency to veil her face and hold off all in-truders. By force and ingenuity alone does man  part the veil or pull back the heavy curtains.

For ages man shivered with cold,
