by everyone and their actions regulat
ed accordingly By so doing much
trouble and expense may be saved
No demand for taxes shall be neces
sary but it shall be the duty of every
person subject t3 taxation under the
laws of the state to attend at the
treasurers ottioe at the county seat
and pay his taxes If any person
neglects to attend and pay his person
al taxes ttxo treasu rer either by him
self or deputy orsleriftif the county
wnen directed oy distress warrant is
sued by the said treasurer is directed
to collect the same together with pen
alty and costs of collection
In case any person having personal
property assessed and upon which the
taxes are unpaid shall in the opinion
of the treasurer be about to remove
out of the county or in any other
manner seek to put his personal prop
erty out of the reach of the treasurer
it shall be the duty of the treasurer to
collect such taxes by distress or attach
ment as the case may require at any
time after the tax has become due
Parties contemplating removing
