'.he bonds at their pleasure, or. when
ever money la needed for the work
or .construction, sixty days' notice to
be; given of delivery. The county
board waa given the accrued interest
up', to the date of deliverr of bonds.,
This would enable the county to save
accrued interest on a large part of the
