Additional title: Photographs of William H. Taft, secretary of war, at different stages of his career. If the office of president is really seeking him, Mr. Taft has hinted that he can be readily overtaken, for he is "walking slow"--a wise thing for a 289 pound man to do in this weather.--Stereographs by Underwood & Underwood, New York.
