Its area is as large as England, Scotland and Wales. If populated as thickly as Belgium it would have 55,000, 000 people. It would take an elevator 185 feet high, covering a 40 acre tract, to hold the cereal crop of one year in Minnesota. If the money paid farmers for their crops was in silver dollars it would make a pile 72 feet high, covering a rod square and weigh 5,387 tons. If paid in $1 bills they would cover more than 520 acres of land. A tub which could hold all the butter made in Minnesota in one year would have' to be 140 feet in diameter and 120 feet deep. The milk produced in Minnesota each day would fill 800 vats 20 feet long, four feet wide and three feet deep. About $45,000,000 worth of pork is produced annually ^from 1,430,000 hogs. More than 40,000,000 bushels of potatoes are produced each year with a market value of more than $10,000,000. The Minnesota hen produces enough eggs each year to make one vast shell 20 feet long and 16 feet in diameter, worth $30,000. If the value of the eggs is added to those of chickens sold for food the total income from poultry will reach $15,000,000 annually. More ore is produced in Minnesota than in Germany twice as much as England, and three times, the quantity of France and Spain. Minnesota produces more than one-fifth of all the flour manufactured in the United States, more than 80,000 barrels a day being turned out in one city alone. Value of all state products, farming, mining and manu facturing, is estimated at $600,000,000, or more than the value of the gold and silver production of the entire world. Enrolled in the public schools are 475,000 children, in charge of an army of 17,000 teachers, directed by 500 super intendents and principals and 86 county superintendents. Nearly $20,000,000 is spent annually for schools and edu cational purposes. —St. Paul Daily News. American Beauty Confectionery Co. Stock kept fresh Sweets for the sweet Sweets sure to repeat D.
