New Mexico is bounded by Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Mexico and Arizona; gross area, 122,634 sq. miles; land area, 122,503 sq. miles; water area, 131 sq. miles; capital, Santa Fe. The principal river is the Rio Grande.
     The surface of the State is mountainous. The Rocky Mountains in the east are the highest, and often reach an elevation of 13,000 feet. The western part is characterized by isolated peaks, lofty plateaus and deep canyons. The soil is very productive.
     The most valuable farm crops are wheat, hay, corn, oats and potatoes.
     The mineral productions are quite extensive. Gold, silver, copper, lead, anthracite and bituminous coal, lignite, salt, plumbago, fire clay, gypsum, cement and marble occur in the mountain districts, and fine turquoise, emeralds, garnets, opals, agates and other precious stones abound.
     The principal industries are mining, agriculture and stock-raising, especially of sheep. Your family will enjoy Arbuckles' Coffee--they will enjoy its full flavor; its appetizing fragrance, and it is always the same.
     The climate varies greatly, owing to differences in elevation.
