Assessments of Farm Land.
  In the following tables are given the assessed and estimated true
values of a few representative farms in counties B, C, and E. It will
be observed that the ratio of assessed to true value for this class of
land is about the same as it is for timberland. About the only difference
noticeable is that the ratio does not vary so greatly as it does in [he
case of timberland. The figures are for the year 1909.
