  In the tables for counties G, C, and H, which follow, will be found
the assessed value for the years 1907, 1908 and 1909, and the estimated
true value in 1909 of certain timbered descriptions in addition to those
given in the preceding tables. The assessed values for three years are
included in these tables, for the purpose of showing that it is not an
uncommon occurrence for an assessor to copy from the assessment roll
for the previous year, and that even where an increase in assessment is
found, it has been made in the most arbitrary manner imaginable. In
County H it will be noted that not a single increase has been made
during the three years in the assessed value of the tracts given, not-
withstanding the fact that the ratio of assessed to true value varies
from 4.2 to 116.1 per cent.
