     The surface of the State is undulating and hilly in the northern part and low and sandy in the southern part. The soil is a sandy loam admirably adapted to agriculture.
     The principal farm crops are corn, wheat, hay, and potatoes. The sand plains in the south raise an abundance of cranberries, and the peach, apple, pear and berry crops of New Jersey are of great value.
     For its size, New Jersey is one of the richest mineral-producing States in the Union. The principal minerals are magnetic iron, copper, zinc, lead, plumbago, manganese, nickel, limestone, slate and trap. Arbuckles' Coffee is always right; always dependable; always sixteen ounces to the pound.
