Welcomed to the City.
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the
Illinois and Iowa State Dental Society
I am indeed quite pleased to meet
you on an occasion of this kind and
take great pleasure in extending to
von a welcome to our citv. I am
"sorrv that we have not more coniino
dious rooms to offer vou, but this
the best we have and I trust vou will
be able to make it serve vour pur
pose. During vour sojourn in th
city you will lind a number of point
of interest which vou might
with profit as well as pleasure,
city is built on historic ground
roundiny us are places made f,
mous by the red men. J he
charge will no doubt
see that vou
have the opport unity to visit these
points of interest, also to visit the
island of Bock Island upon which is
located one of t he greatest arsenals
in the world. The object of your
convention I would suppose is to ex
change views relative to your pro
fession, thus enabling each of you to
augment your own knowledge by
ideas from neighboring practitioners.
This I would deem a commendable
object and one productive of good re
sults. Progress of the 1'rofessioii.
History informs us that years ago
dentistry was at a low tide. It was
practiced principally by blacksmiths,
barbers and watchmakers; men with
out any professional education what
ever. The principal feature of the
proiession ai mat time was ino an
of extracting teeth. Men with brawn
and muscle were thought only to In
eligible to this vocation. If a man's
tooth ailed him. he immediately re
paired to the blacksmith who applied
the only remedy, that of cold steel
and in a very unpleasant manner;
but now under the improved meth
ods adopted by your profession, the
tooth may be "saved, and if necessary
to be extracted, can waft him away
into pleasant dreams and extract the
tooth without his knowledge. You also
have the advantage over your prede
cessors in the fact that if you do ex
tract his teeth, you "can give
new ones in return. Surely, gentle
men, you have made great progress
in your profession. I will not detain
you with a lengthy address, as I sup
pose you have much to do in your
convention. I trust your delibera
tions may be productive of much
good, and in conclusion will again
extend to you a hearty welcome.
At the conclusion of the mayor's
address President Fullerton respond
ed warnilv after which he introduced
Dr. J. K. Cravens, of Indianapolis,
who read a comprehensive paper on

home, 1.518 Fourth avenue, very sud
