Missouri is bounded by Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska; gross area, 69,420 sq. miles; land area, 68,727 sq. miles; water area, 693 sq. miles; capital, Jefferson City. The principal rivers are the Mississippi and Missouri.
     Though the surface of the State presents no considerable elevations, it is greatly diversified. The soil is generally fertile excepting on the hills, where it is mixed with such a proportion of iron oxides as to make it unproductive. Only about one-third of the State is cultivated, the remainder being to a large extent densely timbered. The principal forest trees are the elm, ash, oak, sugar, maple, hackberry, dogwood, sassafras, sweet gum, black gum and pecan. Extensive pine forests extend along the Arkansas border.
     Missouri has numerous valuable mineral resources, among which are gold, silver, lead, iron ores and coal. Missouri ranks first as a lead mining State. The building stones include granite, sandstone and limestone. There are many sulphurous, saline and other mineral springs.
     The principal farm crops are corn, wheat, oats, potatoes, hay, rye and buckwheat. Much of the territory north of the Missouri River is covered with blue grass and is finely adapted to stock-raising. Shoe manufacturing is an important industry. Serve Arbuckles' Coffee.
