Farm valuations included land, fences, and buildings, $13,279.252,649, and implements and machinery, $494,247,467. The estimated value of all farm products in the preceding year was $2,460,107,454. It is to be noted here that the value of the nine principal crops in the calendar year 1899 was only $458,470,003 less than the value of all crops in 1889.
