Louisiana is bounded by Arkansas, Mississippi, the Gulf of Mexico and Texas; gross area, 48,506 sq. miles; land area, 45,409 sq. miles; water area, 3,097 sq. miles; capital, Baton Rouge. The principal river is the Mississippi, which flows through the State for a distance of 800 miles.
     The surface of the State may properly be divided into two parts, the uplands and the flat coast and swamp regions. The soil of Louisiana, generally, is exceedingly fertile. The alluvial lands are world-renowned for their productiveness, and the larger part of the uplands surpass in fertility the same character of lands in most of the States.
     The State possesses exceptionally great agricultural advantages, embracing varieties of products, the principal ones being cotton, sugar cane, rice, corn, oats, hay, fruit and vegetables.
     The principal manufactures are sugar and molasses, lumber and timber products, cottonseed oil and cake, foundry and machine shop products and clothing.
     The mineral resources are only partially developed. Petroleum, however, is found in large quantities on the Gulf coast, and practically all the sulphur produced in the United States comes from Louisiana.
     The climate of Louisiana is favorable to the growth of all agricultural productions. The summers are protracted and occasionally very hot, and the winters are colder than those of the Atlantic States in the same latitude, owing to the free sweep which the northern winds have over the State. Arbuckles' Coffee assures economy--guarantees quality.
