Idaho is bounded by Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia; gross area, 83,888 sq. miles; land area, 83,354 sq. miles; water area, 534 sq. miles; capital, Boise.
     The surface of the State is exceedingly mountainous. Three-fourths of the State (the Southern portion) is arid, agriculture being practised only by means of irrigation. The soil is very fertile when water is applied. The northern portion of the State is covered with dense forests, the principal timber being white and yellow pine, fir, cedar, spruce, hemlock and tamarack.
     The principal minerals are gold, silver and lead. About one-third of the lead mined in the United States comes from Idaho.
     The principal farm products are wheat, cereals, peaches, pears, apples, apricots and prunes. The mountains in the Southern portion afford excellent pasturage and, with irrigation, the plains of the Snake River and its tributary valleys are rapidly being converted into cereal fields.
     The principal articles of manufacture include flour, railroad cars, lumber and timber products, printed matter, harness and saddlery, dairy products, furniture, foundry and machine-shop products, clothing, liquors, tobacco and cigars.
     The climate is moderate and the springs and summers are pleasant and never oppressively hot. Send for a copy of the Arbuckle Coffee premium catalog.
