Texas is bounded by New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Gulf of Mexico and Mexico; gross area, 265,896 sq. miles; land area, 262,398 sq. miles; water area, 3,498 sq. miles; capital, Austin. Principal river is the Rio Grande.
     The surface in the northwest is covered with mountains, while in the southern part are found low alluvial plains. The soil is, as a whole, extremely fertile.
     The principal farm crops are corn, wheat, oats, barley, cotton, rye, potatoes and hay. Texas ranks first in cotton production. Users of Arbuckles' Coffee feel that no other coffee is quite so good; no other coffee is so completely what they want.
     Coal is the most valuable mineral product, but extensive beds of iron, lead, silver, bismuth and gold are also found. There are numerous mineral springs and oil wells.
     The principal industries are the manufacture of lumber and timber, cotton-seed oil and cake flour and grist, railroad cars, ginned cotton, packed meat, saddlery and harness, foundry and machine-shop products and cattle raising.
     The climate of Texas shows considerable variation, ranging from the temperate to the semi-tropical, but in general it is remarkably healthy.
     Population in 1910, 2,017,626 males and 1,878,916 females, of whom 3,654,604 were of native and 241,938 of foreign birth; white, 3,204,848; negro, 690,049; Indian, 702; Chinese, 595; Japanese, 340; all others, 8. Total population, 3,896,542.
