                    EVOLUTION.
        GOD'S METHOD OF WORK IN HIS WORLD.
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  And the
earth was without form and void."

                SO THE sacred record begins. Now
                  there are those who would have been
                  just as happy had the order been re-

him,  and as having, beside, three continuous belts
swinging in like fashion about him.  Unfinished moons
the astronomer interprets these to be, and looks back-

all his moons were belts and the eleven swung about
him, as our one moon (or two) must likewise have done
