We must adopt new methods of farming and pursue

liam H. Taft at Syracuse, N. Y.. Sept. 16, 1911.
This was the keynote of the president's plea for more
intensive farming, lie sounded a note of warning a warn
ing that there must be le.ss thought of extension of area and
more thought of intensive fanning.
The movement from the farm to the city, ho declared,
must be stopped and the lure of the country made stronger.
The almost virgin states of the west must be developed so
they can support a population that will be doubled within tho
next fifty years. This development must come if this country
is to be self-sustaining.
Action in lins with that which the President urges is being taken by the

The inspiration for this splendid cloak
came from far-off Poland where they are
worn, not by the women, but by the
men. But the idea, before it reached us,
had to cross France and France leaves
nothing as she finds it. A magic touch
or two and the rather clumsy "talma"
becomes a garment of beauty and dis
tinction. The Oliva Cloak is one of the
most practical winter garments ever de
signed. With the big collar turned up
it protects you from head to knee. It is
warm, light and comfortable. YOU need
