Montana is bounded by Canada, North and South Dakota, Wyoming and Idaho; gross area, 146,997 sq. miles; land area, 146,201 sq. miles; water area, 796 sq. miles; capital, Helena.
     The surface of the State is highly diversified. In the west it is extremely mountainous. East of the Rocky Mountains is a rolling tableland, traversed by several large rivers. In the south near the Yellowstone River the mountains reach an altitude of 10,000 feet, and the peaks are perpetually covered with snow. The mountains are intersected by numerous valleys and canyons through which flow beautiful rivers.
     The principal farm crops are hay, oats, wheat and potatoes.
     The State is exceedingly rich in minerals. Gold, silver, lead, copper and coal are found in large quantities. Montana ranks second in the United States in the production of copper.
     The principal industries are the refining and smelting of copper and lead, slaughtering and meat packing, and the manufactures of foundry and machine shop products, lumber and timber, malt liquors, flour and grist mills, masonry, railroad cars, plumbing, saddlery and harness, clothing, tobacco and cigars.
     The climate of Montana is warmer than that of the Eastern States in the same latitude and is very dry. Millions of housekeepers who know the importance of getting the right coffee, buy Arbuckles'.
