Kentucky is bounded by Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri and Illinois; gross area, 40,598 sq. miles; land area, 40,181 sq. miles; water area, 417 sq. miles; capital, Frankfort. The principal rivers are the Ohio and the Mississippi.
     The surface of the State is in general a plateau. The soil is, as a rule, exceedingly rich and fertile, especially in that part known as the Blue Grass section, covering an area of over 10,000 square miles, which is also noted for its thoroughbred horses. The fertility of this region is due to the constant decay of a rich sub-stratum of lower Silurian limestone.
     The principal farm crops are corn, wheat, oats, hay, potatoes, rye, barley and tobacco.
     The principal mineral resource of the state is coal.
     The principal industries are in connection with tobacco, liquors, flour and grist mill products, lumber and timber products, iron and steel, slaughtering and meat packing, and foundry and machine shop products. With the signatures on every Arbuckle package, you can get beautiful, useful things for your family and for your home.
