“Show me your God!” the doubter cries.

I point him out the smiling skies;

I show him all the woodland greens;

I show him peaceful sylvan scenes;

I show him Winter snows and frost;

I show him waters tempest-tossed;

I show him hills rock-ribbed and strong;

I bid him hear the thrush’s song;

I show him flowers in the close—

The lily, violet, and rose;

I show him rivers, babbling streams;

I show him youthful hopes and dreams;

I show him stars, the moon, the sun;

I show him deeds of kindness done;

I show him joy, I show him care,

And still he holds his doubting air,

And faithless goes his way, for he

Is blind of soul, and cannot see!

—John Kendrick Banks

All Wet

Don Woods and family of San Jose, California, while on their vacation through Arizona, were caught in a cloud-burst and lost their car and most of their personal belongings.

They were compelled to sleep out in the storm one night, with every thing wet and next day walk through mud a foot deep, barefooted, 14 miles to an Indian Village.
