Kansas is bounded by Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma and Colorado; gross area, 82,158 sq. miles; land area, 81,774 sq. miles; water area, 384 sq. miles; capital, Topeka. The principal river is the Kansas, which intersects the State throughout its entire length.
     The surface of the State is generally flat or undulating. Its altitude above the sea ranges from 750 to 4,000 feet. The soil is exceptionally rich in those mineral substances necessary to support vegetation, and is consequently very fertile. Only a small portion of the State is wooded. The excellent soil of Kansas makes it one of the foremost agricultural States. About 35,000,000 acres of prairie lands are devoted to grazing purposes. The meat business is an important industry.
     The principal farm crops are corn, wheat, hay, oats, potatoes, barley and rye.
     The principal minerals are lead, zinc, bituminous coal, petroleum, gas, salt, gypsum, chalk and lignite.
     Arbuckles' Coffee is always full weight--16 ounces to the pound. It comes to you fresh, with its full strength, protected from moisture and store odors.
     The winters of Kansas are comparatively mild, and the summers warm but not oppressive, and the atmosphere extraordinarily pure and clear at all seasons.
