prophesied the advent of a new re-

"It will not be bound by dogma or

There will be no supernatural element lic
It will place no reliance on any
thing except the laws of nature. Pre

the watchword and a
skilled surgeon one of its "members. "
The coming religion , Doctor Eliot
, will be based on the two great
commandments , the love of God and for
service of fellow men.
"The new religion , " he said , "will to
be based upon authority , the future
generation is to be led , not driven. In
