AREA OF THE UNITED STATE8.
The United States Geological Sur
vey has Just issued Bulletin 02, by
Henry Gannett, which represent the
result of conference and cooperation
ot the iAad Office, Census Bureau and
Geological Survey, In an effort to
agree on what constitutes "the area
of the United States." The abaenee
of a standard of measurement for de
termining the area led to a discrep
ancy between the tables of the census
bureau made in 1887 and those of the
general land office prepared In 1899J
The result of the co-operation In that
the area of the United State proper,
which 1a given as f,02S,78t square
miles, has been Increased over - the
census figure by 1,188 square' miles.
The bulletin gives the area of Alaska
as 500,884; the Philippines 115,028;
Hawaii, ,4; Porto Rico, 3,425; Guam

From these figure it is easy to prove
that ther is much profit ia raising

many eggs as our own people need,
11,600,00 were exported to Great

by the United State. It I therefore
plain that the poultry business is not
likely to be overdone In the United

In Iowa, near Independence, they
have discovered a new agricultural in

pumpkins in the corn fields for the

young people are paying their way
through college on the proceeds
of pumpkin seed raised in the corn
