ware was transferred to Penn's
proprietorship. From the be
ginning of the eighteenth cen
tury, however, Delaware had its
separate legislature, and atthe
titne of the Revolution it be
Crinte an independent state.
Delaware is next to the small
est of our states, havih.g an a-ea
if only 2,370 square miles. Its
participation in presidential elec
tions is limited to three electors.
This is arranged according to
population. Each state is entitled
to the same number of presiden
Iial electors as it has miembers
of congress, so the influence of
the different states in voting for
the President varies from Dela
ware's three electors to New
York's 45.
As to the derivation of the
name Delaware, this was appro
priately given to the state from
the river, which in turn was
naned after the bay and the bay
was called Delaware in honor of
Lord Delaware, who was gover
nor of the Virginia colony in

French expilorer, Duluth, who in,
41678 huilt a fort oin Lake Super
for and there established a very
extensive fur trade. Two years 4
later, Father Hennein and two
f companions were sent by Lta
I Salle to explore the Sper is
sissippi and reached the Falls of
St. Anthony, where Minneapolis
now stands. But it was not un
til the Nineteenth century that
permanent settlements weret
i mde. In 1822 the first mill wal
built at the Falls of St. Anthony,
where were destined to arise
Isuch Important successors. InI
1841, Father Galtier built a
chapel dedicated to St. Paul, and
this as the foundation of the
present great city of that name.
As to the name Minnesota,
the state was so called from the
river that runs through It, which
in the Dakota Indian language 4
makes the words "inne,"
t meaning "Water," and "Sotahl,"
meaning "Sky-colored." Some
times the state Is called the
"North Star State," from the
motto on its coat-of-arms.
Minnesota was admitted to the
Union in 1858. Its area is 84,
682 square miles and It Is the
'most important of our wheat
producing states. It has twelve
presidential electors.

we now call the Allegheny riv-j

of the Obhio. Gradually the
name came to include the whole
river, sometimes even being aip
Splied to the Mississippi. Later
it was confined to the river he-4

a ppropriately the first state

often called the Buckeye State
from its large number of horse
