tribute to universities or learned socie
ties or conventional standards of great
ness, but serenely chooses its own com
rades, its own haunts, its own crudlo
even, and its own life of ndveuture and
of training. Here is proof of it. This
little hut was the cradle of one of the
great sous of men, a man of singular,
delightful ,vitnl genius who presently
emerged upon the great stage of the na
tion's history, gaunt, shy, ungainly, but
dominant and majestic, a natural ruler
of men, himself inevitably the central
figure of the great plot. No man can
explain this, but every man can see how
it demonstrates the vigor of democracy,
where every door is open, in every haul-,
let and countryside, in city and wilder
ness alike, for the ruler to emerge when
he will and claim his leadership in the
free life. Such arc the authentic proofs
of the validity and vitality of democ
racy. "Hers, no less, hides the mystery of
democracy. Who shall guess this secret
of nature and providence and a free
policy! Whatever the vigor and vital
ity of the stock from which he sprang,
its mere vigor and soundness do not cx
plniu where this man got his great heart
that seemed to comprehend all mankind
iu its catholic and benignant sympathy,
the mind thut sat enthroned behind
those brooding, melancholy eyes, whose
vision swept ninny an horizon which
those about him dreamed not of,
Hint mind thnt comprehended what it
had never seen, and understood the Inn
gunge of affairs with the ready case of
one to the manner born, or that nature
which seemed in its vuried richness to
be the familiar of men of every way of
life. This is the sacred mystery of
democracy, that its richest fruits spring
up out of soils which no man tins pre
pared anil in circumstuuc.es amidst
which they are the least expected. This
is a place alike of mystery and of reas
surance. It is likely that in n society ordered
otherwise than our own Lincoln could
not have found himself or the path of
fame and power upon which he walked
serenely to his death. Ill this placo it is
right that we should remind ourselves
of the solid and striking facts upon
which our faith iu democracy i-s found
ed. Many another man besides Lincoln
has served the nation in its highest
places of counsel and of action whose
origins were as humble ns his. Though
the greatest example of the universal
energy, richness, stimulation, and force
of democracy, ho is only one example
among many. The permeating and all
pervasivo virtue of the freedom which
challenges us in America to make the
most of every gift and power we possess
every page of our history serves to em
phasize mill illustrate. Standing here in
this place, it seems almost the whole
of the stirring story.
Here Lincoln hud his beginning. Here
the end and consummation of that
great life seems remote and a bit in
credible. And yet there was no break
anywhere between beginning and end,
no luck of natural sequence anywhere.
Nothing renlly incredible happened.
Lincoln was unaffectedly lis much at
home in the White House as he was
here. Do you share with me the feeling,
I wonder, that he was permtmetly at
home nowheref It seems to me that in
the experiences which brought it to its
tun revelation, me test of every Amer
ican must' always be, not where he is,
but what he is. That, also, is of the
essence of democracy, and is the mornl
of which, this place is most gravely ex
pressive. "We would like to think of men like
Lincoln and Washington as typical
Americans, but no man can be typical
who is so unusual as these great men
were. It was typical of American life
that it should produce such men with
supreme indifference as to the manner
in which it produced them, and ns read
ily here iu this hut as amidst the little
circle of cultivated gentlemen to whom
Virginia owed so much in leadership
and example. And Lincoln and Wash
ington were typical Americans iu the
use they made of their geuius. But
there will be few such men at best, and
we will not look into the mystery of
how and why they come. We will only
keep the door open for them always,
and a hearty welcome, after we have
recognized them.
"I have read many biographies of
Lincoln; I have sought out with the
greatest interest the many intimate
stories that are told of him, the narra
tives of nearby friends, the skteches at
close quarters, in which thoso who hail
the privilege of being associated with
him havo tried to depict for us the very
man himself 'in his habit as he lived;'
but I huve nowhere found a real inti
mate of Lincoln's. I nowhere get the
impression in any narrative or reminis
cence thut the writer had in fact pene
trated to the heart of his mystery, or
that any man could penetrate to the
heart of it. That brooding spirit had no
real familiars. I get the impression
thut it never spoke out in complete
self-revelation, and that it could not
reveal itself completely to anyone. It
was a very lonely spirit that looked out
from underneath these shaggy brows
and comprehended men without fully
communing with them, a.t if, in spite of
all its genial efforts at comradeship,
it dwelt apart, saw its visions of duty
where no man looked on. There is a
very holy and very terribh isolation
for the conscience of every man who
seeks to rend the destiny in affairs foi
others as well as for himsclt. for a na
tion ns well ns for individuals. That
privacy no man can intrude upon. That
lonely search of the spirit for the right
peruana no man can assist. 1 li is strange
child of the cabin kept company with
invisible things, was born into no mti
mncy but that of itij own silently as
semhliiig and- deploying thoughts.
"I have conic here today, not to utter
a eulogy on Lincoln; he stands in need
of uoiie. but to endeavor to interpret
the meaning of this gift to the nation
ot the place ot his birth anil origin, if
not this an altar upon which we mnj
forever keep alive the vestal 'fire oi
democracy as upon a shrine at which
some of the deepest and mosesncret!
hopes of mankind ninv from uge to ng
be rekindled? For these hopes must
constantly bo rekindled, and only those
who live can rekindle them. The only
stuff that can retain the life-giving
heat is the stuff of living hearts. And
the hopes of mankind cannot be kept
alive by words merely, by constitutions
and doctrines of right and codes of lib-
from the logging service in order to
take care of the finished product.
General Manager Scott of the South
ern Pacific company has written the
public service commission another let
ter, but makes no reference to car shore,
age matters.- The letter Is a protest
against the demurrage rates in Ore

present rates the railroad company se
cures no substantial returns, either1 in
way of earlier release of shipment or
collection of demurrage. The public
service commission is entirely helpless
in mis marrer.

formally accepted for the United Mates
the ownership and custody of the birth
place of Abraham Lincoln at Hodgcns

set for the formal taking over of the
property by the government, with ap

consists of the farm, with the cabin in
which Lincoln was born and the me

which houses and protects the cabin.
