farmers who desire to insure their

zones comprise different parts of the
state, the lines dividing the eastern,
central and western parts with tip
proximate north and south lines cut

western part where there is great

is i.atnrally highest.
At the time of listing the property
in his district for assessment, the
r.r.oesoor, who is provided with Uk
