When the assessors start out on the rounds on March 1st they are going to be more persistent in getting a correct valuation of household goods, and especially of pianos and other high class furnishings. In most homes they will probably not take the word of the person giving in the assessments, but will insist on walking into the house and having a look for themselves. In many cases the assessments of personal property will show quite an increase in taxation if the advice of the County Assessor’s association is followed. One of the resolutions I adopted at the session declares household furniture and musical instruments are assessed too low, and township assessors should be instructed to make a personal inventory of all articles when making assesssments. The ''same recommendation is made in regard to farm implements, and assessors are also advised to make personal visits to coal mines before fixing their assessments. The market price on March 1st, deducting a reasonable amount for marketing was fixed as the basis for the valuation of farm produets. ■m
