Rhode Island, one of the original thirteen states, is bounded by Massachusetts, Atlantic Ocean and Connecticut; gross area, 1,248 sq. miles; land area, 1,067 sq. miles; water area, 181 sq. miles; capital, Providence.
     The State is divided into two unequal parts by Narragansett Bay, which extends inland about thirty miles. The surface of the western portion or mainland is hilly, but the hills are all low. The eastern part consists mainly of islands.
     The mineral resources of the State are not very extensive, though considerable anthracite coal, excellent for smelting purposes, and much magnetic iron have been mined at times. There are about twenty large granite quarries in the State, those at Westerly being noted for their value in monumental work.
     The principal manufactures are jewelry and textiles. Compare Arbuckles' Coffee with the coffee you now serve. Learn why more Arbuckles' is sold than any other packaged coffee.
     The climate of Rhode Island is temperate.
