Rev. Samuel Eliot Tells
Congress o f National
Federation There Are
"Too Many Superfluous
Speaker ABserts Spirit of Ago
Has Grown Weary of Theo
logical Controversy and
Needs Application of Princi
ples Which Christ Taught.
i mixture of conservatism and radical
ism is tho Ideal ot religions, In tlio opin
ion of tho Rev. Samuel Eliot, ot Boston,
president ot tlio American Unitarian As
sociation, who declared thoro voro "too
piany superfluous Christians" throughout
the country In his address today before
tho Natlonnl Federation of Religious
Jjbcrala at tho Friends' Meeting House,
Mill and Raco streets, assembled In this
r' city tor tho fifth annual congress of the
Doctor Eliot declared that It v,na "piti
ful to soo ministers serving Christ In com
munities supporting three churches where
there Is not room for one."
'I Know of ono city of 100,000 Inhabi
tants where tho majority of tho residents
are Catholics. They hnvo four well-established
parishes, whllo tho Protestants,
who aro In tho minority, romombor, are
supporting El churches, no ono of them
strong and vigorous."
In closing his address, Mr. Eliot said:
"Here, at least, Is a Uttlo band of poo
plo who believe In tho things of this
world which wo seo as temporal and In
tho unseen things as spiritual. Most
peoplo do not seem to bo ablo to compre
hend tho liberal. They must cither bo
radical or conservative Wo want a mix
ture of both. That Is our Ideal of re
ligion." Although tho congress Is not declared to
be held In opposition to tho "Billy" Sun
day iclal, tho opening remarks of the
Itcv. Thomas W. lllman, pastor of All
Souls Unlvcrsallst Church, West Phila
delphia, In behalf ot tho Liberal Minis
ters' Club of this city, wore construed by
many to bo a challenge to tho strenuous
baseball evangelist.
"Liberals and progressives aro none too
numerous in this city," said Mr. lllman,
"and so you look very good to us. Wo
need you to rofrcsh a sorely strained
spirit of tolerance. Wo liberals of Phila
delphia havo been called upon to endure
tho most Insulting Intolerance, which
loudly lamented Its Inability to perpetrate,
as present experience, tho future damna
tion it so lavishly Invoked and threatened.
Wo need you to help us bo patient and
sympathetic with our fellow human be
ings In their BlownoBS to receive tho
larger truths and finer faiths. You will do
cur needy city of Philadelphia much
Tho koynoto of tho cntlro movement was
struck by the Rev. Charles W. Wendte,
cf Boston, executive secretary of tho Na
tional Federation of Religious Liberals,
when, in his report, he said:
"Tho spirit of our ago has grown sick
end tired of religious controversy, dog
matic assumptions of superior knowledge
and authority by both radicals and con
servatives, and Interdenominational feuds,
and is demanding a larger vision and a
more conciliatory and inclusive spirit.
Tho need of tho times is not dogmatism,
blind faith and abstract proachlng. Earn
est and frank testimony should bo given
for religious and social rofsim, and ex
isting evils in church and b. lety should
bo fearlessly denounced. Wo must learn
to apply tho doctrines and ethics which
Christ taught to the many social prob
lems of tho times. By doing bo wo will
give Christianity a real moaning and
imake It a powerful force."

The Material Side of
When modern dentistry came into being, there wero
no manufacturers of dentists' supplies Dentistry was
practically a secret art; the making of his tools was part
ot tho dentist's training. In many cases his services
consisted largely of the extraction of teeth and the nup
plylng of artificial substitutes. Naturally, the making of
porcelain teeth was the first strictly dontal manufacture.
The first manufacturer of porcelain teeth la America was
Dr. A. A. Plantou, of Philadelphia; the second was Charles
"W. Peale, also of Philadelphia, Next was Samuel W.
Stockton, another Philadelphlan, whose manufacture was
the first to attain commercial Importance, dating from
about 182S. Hq was followed by Ills nephew and name.
uaKe, Dr. Samuel Stockton White, who in 1814 laid the
foundation for the business of this company. In 1S76
Doctor White was credited with making "aver four mil
lions of teeth, about two. thirds of the whole number
used In the world." Long beforo this the business of the
