Tho assessment rolls show a total
of 33.408.77G acres of land returned
this year, an lncrcaso over that of
last year of CC7.586 acres. Tho aver
ago assessed valuation of improved
land is $3.91 an acre, as agalnBt $3.15
last year. Unimproved land is return
ed at an average of $1.14 this year and
$1.05 last. Tho average value of im
proved lots has been lncrcasod from
$127.7G to $128.71.
Tho number of cattlo returned this
year Ib 2,313,495, with an averago
value of $4.46 each; horses, 659,983,
with an avcrn;o value of $7.74, and

$9.40 a head.
Tho total assessment of tho stato Is
$188,458,379, an Increase of $8,481,811
