Minnesota is bounded by Canada, Lake Superior, Wisconsin, Iowa, and North and South Dakota; gross area, 84,682 sq. miles; land area, 80,858 sq. miles; water area, 3,824 sq. miles; capital, St. Paul. The principal river is the Mississippi, which has its source in this State.
     The surface of Minnesota is undulating, with no mountains, but having a broad, low elevation in the north, 280 miles in length. This elevation is about 1,000 feet above the south of the State toward which it descends in a gradual slope. There are over 7,000 small lakes varying from 1 to 30 miles in diameter. The soil is of alluvial deposit of great richness, and especially adaptable to wheat growing. The fertility of the soil, the extent of the country, and abundance of water make Minnesota an ideal agricultural State.
     The farm crops are wheat, oats, corn, hay, potatoes, barley, rye and buckwheat. The moment Arbuckles' Coffee was brought out, years ago, its popularity began.
     The principal minerals are iron, copper, plumbago and coal. Minnesota ranks first in the United States in the production of iron. The building stones include granite, sandstone and limestone.
     The principal industries are railroad cars, packed meat, flour and lumber.
     The climate of Minnesota is mild, and the purity of the air and dryness of the winters renders the State a chosen place of recuperation for those suffering from pulmonary complaints.
     Population in 1910, 1,108,511 males and 967,197 females; of whom 1,532,113 were of native and 543,595 of foreign birth; white, 2,059,227; negro, 7,084; Indian, 9,053; Chinese, 275; Japanese, 67; all others, 2. Total population, 2,075,708.
