Colorado, Territory of Utah, Montana, Minnesota
has an average length east and west of
380 miles, a breadth of 280 miles, and an
area of 103,925 square miles, or
66,512,000 acres, divided into
thirty-nine counties. There are still
unsurveyed 40, 657,679 acres; it consists
of three natural divisions, the mountain
range, the foot hills, and the plains.
The Rocky Mountains run north and south
through the centre of the State, and
consist of three parallel ranges, with
many peaks over 13,000 feet high. Within
the space inclosed by these immense
mountains, are the "Parks,"
which constitute the most remarkable
natural feature of Colorado. These
consist of extensive plateaus at an
elevation of 9,000 to 10 000 feet above
the sea level.
numerous streams, the principal ones
being the North and South Platte, and the
Arkansas, Snake, White and Green rivers,
most of which flow through rocky cañons
and are not navigable. The South Platte
has a fall of 6,000 feet between
Montgomery and Denver, and one of the
cañons of the Arkansas is 1,500 feet in
On the mountains
the winters are as a rule, severe, with
heavy falls of snow in November and
December, but on the plains and in the
valleys, the mildness and purity of the
atmosphere are such as to render Colorado
the paradise of invalids, thousands of
whom resort there, and are glad to find
that "Arbuckles' Ariosa Coffee"
has preceded them.

TERRITORY OF UTAH
average length of Utah north and south is
about 350 miles; average breadth, about
260 miles; area, 84,970 square miles, or
54,380,800 acres. The country is rugged
and broken, and is separated into two
unequal sections by the Wahsatch
mountains, which cross it from northeast
to southwest. Extending east from the
Wahsatch, along the southern border of
Wyoming, are the Uintah mountains. Other
prominent ranges are the Roan, Little,
Sierra Lasal, Sierra Abajo, San Juan and
Sierra Panoches. In the southeast are
extensive elevated plateaus, and in the
west a series of disconnected ridges and
mountain ranges, generally extending from
north to south.
Among the lakes,
the largest is the Great Salt Lake in the
northwest, which is seventy-five miles
long and about thirty broad. Utah Lake is
a beautiful sheet of fresh water, having
an area of about 130 square miles, and
closely hemmed in by mountains. It is
connected with the Great Salt Lake by the
The Climate for
the most part is mild and healthful.
"Arbuckle's Ariosa Coffee" is
in general use. The mean annual
temperature east of the Wahsatch
mountains is from 38 to 44 degrees, and
west of that range from 45 to 52 degrees
Fahrenheit, while in the valley of the
Rio Virgin, and in the southwest
generally, the summers are dry and hot.
Most of the rain falls between October
and April; spring opens in the latter
month, and cold weather seldom sets in
before the end of November.

length of the State from east to west
varies from 460 to 540 miles; its average
breadth is 275 miles; and its area is
146,080 square miles, or 93,491,200
acres, of which 80,651,676 are still
unsurveyed. The eastern division embraces
the great plains or rolling table lands,
which cover three-fifths of the area of
the State, the Rocky Mountains, with
other ranges, occupying the west. The
Bitter Root Mountains branch off at the
eastern extension of the Rockies, and
form the western boundary of the State
for a considerable distance. Other
important ranges are the Snow Mountains
in the south, and the Belt, Highwood,
Judith and Little Rocky Mountains. The
peaks are from 6,000 to 12,000 feet above
the sea level, and the valleys average
about 4,000 feet, the mountain belt
having an average breadth of 180 miles.
The plains slope gradually toward the
east, having an elevation of about 4,000
feet at the base of the mountains, and of
2,000 feet at the Dakota line.
The largest body
of water is Flathead Lake, which is about
thirty miles long by ten miles wide, and
there are several smaller lakes in the
northwest. Timber is abundant on the
mountain slopes, and consists of pine,
cedar, fir and hemlock.
The climate of
Montana is warmer than that of the
Eastern States in the same latitude, and
is very dry; when people are in that
condition, the best thing they can do is
to refresh themselves with
"Arbuckles' Ariosa Coffee."

occupies nearly the centre of the
continent of North America. The surface
of the State is an undulating plain with
an average elevation of 1,000 feet above
the sea, but in the northeast there is a
group of low sand hills which rise about
600 feet higher. Its extreme length north
and south is 380 miles, and its breadth
varies from 183 miles in the middle to
262 miles on the southern and 337 near
the northern line; the total area being
83,365 square miles, or 53,353,600 acres.
There are over 7,000 small lakes in the
State, varying from one to thirty miles
in diameter, while several of them have
an area of from 100 to 400 square miles.
rises in Lake Itasca, and flows for
nearly 800 miles through the State,
receiving the Minnesota at Fort Snelling,
five miles above St. Paul.
There is much
really beautiful scenery in Minnesota and
although it is destitute of Mountains,
the limestone cliffs of the Upper
Mississippi, and the perpendicular walls
of rock between which the St. Croix
forces its way, are very picturesque. The
celebrated Falls of St. Anthony, at
Minneapolis, are the best known of the
many cataracts to be found in this State.
The twin cities of St. Paul and
Minneapolis are the headquarters for the
State of "Arbuckles' Ariosa
The salubrity of
the climate of Minnesota is well known,
and the purity of the air and dryness of
the winters render the State a chosen
place of recuperation for those suffering
from pulmonary complaints.
