the Assessment for I878i
The Asicsfor's books for 1873 art on
ilo in the Count; Clerk's offico, and
eoiko a very fair and just exhibit of the
Health of Lincoln county.
The population of our county s about
16,000, and the number of persona as
toised with personal property is 3,416.
This shows that one person out of every
four and two thirds of the population is
mossed with personal property ; or that
th average number of persons in each
family is four and two-thirds. The gen
eral distribution of property thus shown
ia an evidonco of tho general prosperity
f the oounty.
Tho total valuation of personal prop
erty is 81,175,310. This amount divided
among those assessed gives 8314.09 to
eaoh one ; if among tho entire popula
tion of 10,000, it would givo each man,
woman and cLild in tho county the sum
of 873.45. The personal property is
ssessod as follows :
7388 horses; 8277,200
1278 mules, 04, 0,10
13457 cattle, 175,910
12G90 sheep, 13,980
42924 hogs, 97,090
Money, notes, bonds and orodits, 320,420
Other personal property, 220,000
Tho Real Estate and town lots are
valued as follows :
RAST OF THE MERIDIAN LINE.
858 town lots, 8 34.580
189,903.45 acres, 1,330,510
WEST OF THE MERIDIAN LINE.
691 town lots, $ 131,730
102,945 35 acres, 1,408,230
Aggregate valuation in jeal
catate. 82.905 050
Average valuo per aero east of the
meridian, 87 06 ; rvcrage valuo of town
lots, 840.30. Average valuo per acre
west of tho meridian, 813.08; average
value of town lots, 8190.63. 'J here are
teveral towns cast of the meridian which
re very large on paper, such as Moscow
and Sterling, that have but about half a
dozen houses in them. Vacant lets have
but little value, and the avcrago conee
quently must be very low. Considerable
of tho Mississippi bottom lands and
Cuivre hills are, of but little value, and
this reduces the average on lands in tho
county to 86.97 per acre.
The county is richer than it was last
year, as is shown by tho following table,
comparing the assessments of the years
1872 and 1873:
No. horses, 5 413
No. mules, 1 199
No. cattlo 12.438
No. hogs, 38 811
No. sheep, 12,714
13 457 1,01!'
Total valuation of real and personal
proper in 1872, 83,722.506; in 1873,
84,080,300; increase 8357,851.
Our agricultural readers will doubtless
be interested in tho communication of
"North Cuivre" under tho caption of
"The Stock Law" It is a matter that
interests all farmers, whether stock
ownera or not, and as our representatives
are governed generally by the will of
their constituents, so far as this will
can be made known to them, it would be
wiso to mako public that will at as early
a day aa possible. Some are opposed to
it, while others favor tho project of en
closing all stock, and a lively discussion
of thta question may roeult in good,
and cannot fail to prove of interest to
agricultural men. Send us more articles
on the aubjeot.

A YBE ONLY Y0R THE HERALD
TIm fitoek t.w.
fcorjisviUE, Fob. 13, 1873.
Editor Herald: In ho Illustrated
JoUNial of Agricultuvo I find an nrticlo
entitle "A Block Law," saying : "Tiie
question of fences and fencing las Seen
discussed by farmer's clubs and in agri
cultural papers for many years," &o. It
has obtained an almost unanimous ver
diet, which may lo stated as follows :
1st. As the law is, you must fenco all
lands for crops or posturago.
2d. Tho cost of fencing is grievous.
8d. Twonty years' expenonco lias
proven that hedging, wiro fencing, ditch
ing, ifcc , havo been moro or less a failure.
4th. Tho question now to bo deter
mined is, Shall tho farmers continue to
build costly fences, or shall thcro bo a
law enacted compelling stock owners to
keep them enolosed ?
The writer says "it shall do tho great
est good to tho greatest number." 1 say,
right ; but ho is in a great hurry to get a
law passed by tho present cession of our
legislature.. Why in so great a hurry ?
I think most of tho smaller farmcia and
tenants in Missouri are not in so great a
hurry about it.
The writer Bays it has been tried by
tho monarchies in tho west of Europe,
and works well. I did not suppose the
majority of tho citizons of Missouri were
so favorable to tho adoption of tho laws
and usages of kingly governments, Tho
timo may come when we will want such a
law; but if it should be passed, what
would bo tho penalties for transgression 7
Ah, that is an after thought. Some
who voted for a stock law in soveral of
our sister states are very averse to it now,
uccauso soma siocit got out and was
takon up by the officers and sold, tho
owners not seeing tho advertisement ;
anu u is amrmca mat in somo cases
fences wero pulled down in order to mako
I hope somo able person will tako tho
matter up and let us learn something
about it in timo.
