Massachusetts, one of the thirteen original States, is bounded by Vermont, New Hampshire, Atlantic Ocean, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York; gross area, 8,266 sq. miles; land area 8,039 sq. miles; water area, 227 sq. miles; capital, Boston. The principal river is the Connecticut.
     The surface of the State is mostly rough and rugged with irregular mountain systems. The coast line is very irregular, being indented by numerous bays, which afford excellent harbors.
     Most of the soil is too rocky for cultivation and is suited only for pasturage.
     Massachusetts ranks second in the United States in the production of granite.
     This State is preeminently a manufacturing State. Lowell is noted as the largest carpet milling city in the United States. Worcester has the largest steel wire works in the world, and Holyoke ranks first in paper manufacturing. The principal articles of manufacture are shoes, note paper, cotton goods, silverware, bronzes, automobiles, rubber goods, rattan, tools and carpets.
     The climate of Massachusetts is temperate. When you use the first pound of Arbuckles' Coffee, you will know why more Arbuckles' Coffee is sold than any other packaged coffee.
     Population in 1910, 1,655,248 males and 1,711,168 females, of whom 2,307,171 were of native and 1,059,245 of foreign birth; white, 3,324,926; negro, 38,055; Indian, 688; Chinese, 2,582; Japanese, 151; all others, 14. Total population, 3,366,416.
