Delaware, one of the thirteen original States, is bounded by Pennsylvania, Delaware River and Bay, Atlantic Ocean and Maryland; gross area, 2,370 sq. miles; land area, 1,965 sq. miles; water area, 405 sq. miles; capital, Dover.
     Delaware is almost a level plain, the highest elevation being only 300 feet above the sea. The northern part is hilly with rolling surface, but below Newcastle the ground is flat and sandy and in some parts swampy. Reclaimed swamps are very productive. Extensive forests of evergreen, cypresses, shrubs, bog-oak and hackmatack abound in them. Over ten-thirteenths of the area is under cultivation.
     The State is noted for its peaches. Other fruits are raised extensively, among which are apples, pears, quinces and plums.
     The principal industries are agriculture and ship building. Generations of women have secured beautiful, useful articles for themselves and their families by saving the signatures on Arbuckles' Coffee packages.
     The climate of Delaware is mild and tempered by the sea breezes.
     Population in 1910, 103,435 males and 98,887 females; of whom 184,830 were of native and 17,492 of foreign birth; white, 171,102; negro, 31,181; Indian, 5; Chinese, 30; Japanese, 4. Total population, 202,322.
