(UPl—Dr. Lewis Warren, founder of the Abraham Lincoln foundation at Fort Wayne. Ind., recently challenged much of the folklore surrounding the life of Illinois No. 1 citizen. The Rutledge romance in Abe Lincoln's life was "pure fiction from beginning to end," Warren said. II was true that Lincoln had a love affair in Salem, 111., he explained, but it was witli a Mis;; Owen and not Ann Rullcd'je. Miss Owen turned down the opportunity of becoming the wife of the Great Emancipator. Warren said. The report that Lincoln's home life witli his wife Mary Todd Lincoln was unhappy has little basi.-i in fact. Warren declared. She was an exceptionally well-educated woman, who did much to help Lincoln, Warren said. Folklore also has me youthful Lincoln pictured as poverty-stricken. This was untrue, according l.o Warren. Lincoln's schooling compared with that of oilier youth of his day. Warren said. And the tale that Honest Abe picked up a scrap of paper on the ! train going to Gettysburg to write Ins now famous address is again just so much folklore. Wan-fin d'_'- clarccl. Lincoln wrote the speech weil~».i.advance of Getlysburgrund its excellence was not just a stroke, of luck. It resulted,- Warren snicl,' from of trainini; in oratory, nnd n stvle (hat came from studying the Bible. Township Folk Plow Land tor Sick Farmer ADA, O.
