NEBRASKA
Nebraska is bounded by South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming; gross area, 77,520 sq. miles; land area, 76,808 sq. miles; water area, 712 sq. miles; capital, Lincoln. The principal river is the Missouri River. More families use Arbuckles' Coffee than all other packaged coffees put together.
     The surface of the State is flat or undulating with a slight inclination Southeast. On the Northwest is an extensive desolate tract of land known as the Mauvaises Terres or Bad Lands, rich in interesting fossil remains. The soil, excepting in the Northwest, is rich and fertile, and is admirably adapted to withstand drought. The forest trees include cedar, linden, cottonwood, hackberry, pine and spruce. Considerable attention is paid to forestry and cattle raising.
     The mineral products are not extensive. Lignite, marble, lime, gypsum,, rock salt and peat are found in limited quantities all over the State. Considerable clay for brick and pottery is obtained in the Central and Western parts of the State.
     The even temperature, fertile soil and extensive farm area make Nebraska an important agricultural State. The principal farm crops are corn, wheat, oats, potatoes, hay, barley, rye, sugar beets and buckwheat.
     The climate is equable, and on the whole fine.
     Population in 1910, 627,782 males and 564,432 females, of whom 1,015,552 were of native and 176,662 of foreign birth; white, 1,180,293; negro, 7,689; Indian, 3,502; Chinese, 112; Japanese, 590; all others, 28. Total population, 1,192,214.
