Hodgenville Ky.f Sept. 4. Many
thousands made the pilgrimage today,
Tvtr .qti in oiitnmnhiloa afnnt ttrA in
I which Abraham Lincoln was born
... . . . , -
The memorial was accepted for the
nation by President Wilson, who in
doing so spoke as follows:
so many of the things that we prize
most highly in our life and in our sys
tem of government. How eloquent this
little house W.ithin this shrine is of
the vigor of democracy! There. is no
where in the land any home so remote,
so humble, that it may not .contain the
power f anAd art apd con.
science to which nations yield and his
tory submits its processes. Nature
pays no tribute to aristocracy, sub
scribes to no creed of caste, renders
fealty to no monarch or master of any
name or kind. Genius is no snob. It
does not run after titles or seek by
preference the high circles of society.
It affects humble company as well as
great. v It pays no special tribute to
Hio eA RnHpHo nr
eonventional standards of greatness,
t cut - serenely chooses its srown com-
even, and its own life of adventure and
of training. Here is proof of it. This
little hut was the cradle of one of the
great sons of men, a man of singular,
delightful, vital genius who present
ly emerged upon the great stage of the
nation'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 hamlet and countryside,
in city and wilderness alike, for the
ruler to emerge when he will and
claim his leadership in the free life.
Such are the authentic proof of the
validity and vitality of democracy.
"Here, no less, hides the mystery of
democracy. Who shall guess this se
cret of nature and providence and a
free polity? Whatever the vigor and
great neart mat seemea to compre
hend, all mankind in its catholic and
benignant sympathy, the mind that sat
enthroned behind those brooding, mel
ancholy eyes, whose vision swept
j many an horizon which those about
him dreamed not of that mind that
comprehended what it had never seen,
and understood the language of affairs
with the ready ease of one to the man
ner born or that nature which seem
ed in its varied richness to be the fa
miliar of men of every way of life.
This is the sacred mystery of democ
racy, that its richest fruits spring up
out of soils which no man has prepared
and in circumstances amidst which
they are the least expected. This is a
place alike of mystery and of reassur
ance. ,It is likely that in a 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. Int this place
it is right that we should remind our
selves of the solid and striking facts
upen which our faith in democracy is
founded. Many another man besides
Lincoln has served the nation in its
highest places of counsel and of ac
tion whose origins were as humble as
his. Though the greatest example of
the universal energy, richness, stimu
lation .and force of democracy, he is
only one example among many. The
permeating and all-pervasive 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 emphasize and
illustrate. Standing here in this place,
it seems almost the whole of the stli-
"Here Lincoln had his . beginnings.
Here the end and consummation of
that great life seem remote and a bit

was the following inscription "For the ,
Good of Wilmington." The other float
was just' an ordinary wagon, contain

the Rotary floats were automobilesc
containing a number of Rotarians. '
Dressed in full Indian war regalia,
the local order of Red Men made an
excellent showing. A float also dis
played an Indian camp scene, showing
