CHARMING DOLLY MADISON. The Greatest ef All the MUtrnm mt the White Heaae. To define the charm of a charming woman Is always difficult Dolly Mad ison's features were not regular, nor was her figure perfect. She was not witty, nor was she wise, and she par ticipated little if at all in her hus band's intellectual life. Nevertheless she stands out as the greatest of all mistresses of the White House, and her popularity was unbounded. She ruled over her world in Washington with genial good nature and instinc tive tact. Her nature was warm, af fectionate and impressionable. She loved life aud people, and her world loved her. - Her brilliant coloring, ani mated face and well rounded figure went with a cordial manner and a sym pathy for those about her amounting to genius, and she was always ready to bubble into laughter. Who could resist such a woman, the wife of a president? She was the cen ter of observation at the inaugural ball, but she would have been the cen ter of observation at any ball even If she had not been the president's wife. She had, in fact, ruled as Indisputably over the little boarding bouse In Phila delphia kept by her mother when she was the Widow Todd as she did over the White House ss Mrs. Madison.
