Colorado is bounded by Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Utah; gross area, 103,948 sq. miles; land area, 103,658 sq. miles; water area, 290 sq. miles; capital, Denver.
     Colorado is very mountainous, being traversed by the Rocky Mountains, which extend over nearly the entire breadth of the State. The average altitude of the State is 7,000 feet, the lowest portion being 3,000 feet above the sea. The valleys are a distinguishing feature of the scenery. Colorado is the principal watershed in the Western States, many of the largest rivers having their origin here, among them the Platte, Colorado, San Miguel, Arkansas and Rio Grande del Norte. The mountains are well covered with pine, spruce and fir forests. There are various mineral springs which are valuable for medicinal purposes.
     Colorado is by far the first State in the Union in mineral wealth. It ranks first in the production of gold and silver, and is rich in lead, copper, zinc, manganese, iron and coal.
     Among the principal farm products are sugar beets and melons.
     The climate is very healthful and mild, and people suffering from pulmonary and asthmatic troubles find much relief here. The delicious flavor of Arbuckles' Coffee will delight the whole family.
