     The surface of the State is generally level and is covered with prairie land, with no swamps or natural forests. The soil generally is a soft black loam, and of almost inexhaustible fertility. The principal natural trees are oak, hickory, elm, black walnut, linden, cottonwood, maple, cedar, slippery elm, ash and pine.
     The principal farm crops are corn, oats, wheat, barley, rye, buckwheat, potatoes and hay.
