South Carolina, one of the thirteen original States, is bounded by North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and the Atlantic Ocean; gross area, 30,989 sq. miles; land area, 30,495 sq. miles; water area, 494 sq. miles; capital, Columbia. The principal river is the Savannah.
     The State has a seaboard of 210 miles, and running west from this is a low, sandy, and in places marshy plain, from 80 to 100 miles wide. The central part consists of low sand hills and in the west are found the Blue Ridge Mountains.
     The principal mineral productions are gold, silver, phosphate rock, mineral waters, granite, limestone and clay products.
     The principal farm crops are cotton, maize, corn, rice and sweet potatoes.
     The principal industries are cotton manufactures, lumber and timber products, fertilizers, cotton-seed oil and cake flour, and grist mill products, rice cleaning and polishing, turpentine, rosin, railroad cars, cotton ginning and brick and tile.
     The climate of the State is mild. Many women--now grandmothers--began housekeeping with Arbuckles' Coffee, and are still using it.
