Wisconsin is bounded by Lake Superior, Michigan, Lake Michigan, Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota; gross area, 56,066 sq. miles; land area, 55,256 sq. miles; water area, 810 sq. miles; capital, Madison. The principal rivers are the Mississippi and Wisconsin.
     Wisconsin is an elevated undulating plain with an altitude of from 600 to 1,800 feet above the sea. Much of the northern part of the State is covered with extensive forests of white pine, balsam, hemlock and other cone-bearing evergreens. The soil in the north is not well adapted to agriculture, but the prairies in the south and central portion are exceedingly rich and productive, raising cereals, tobacco and potatoes in great quantities. Arbuckles' premiums are almost as famous as Arbuckles' Coffee.
     The principal farm products are corn, wheat, oats, barley, rye, buckwheat, potatoes and hay. It is noted for its dairy products also.
     The mineral resources of the State are very extensive. The principal minerals are coal, lead, copper, iron, zinc, red and brown hematite, granite, sandstone, limestone and mineral water.
     The principal manufactures are lumber, timber, flour and grist, foundry and machine-shop products, railroad cars, leather, malt liquors, packed meat, paper and wood pulp.
     The climate of Wisconsin is moderate, the cold of winter being tempered by the vicinity of Lake Michigan, and the excessive heat of the short summers being modified by the breezes from that body of water and Lake Superior.
     Population in 1910, 1,208,578 males and 1,125,282 females, of whom 1,820,995 were of native and 512,865 of foreign birth; white, 2,320,555; negro, 2,900; Indian, 10,142; Chinese, 226; Japanese, 34; all others, 3. Total population, 2,333,860.
