Notice to Treasurers School Dists.
I have received a number of letters sta
ting that the school orders are not paid
in the order of registration. To save any
further trouble , I will refer you to section
12 of chapter 93 of the compiled statutes
of Nebraska for 1865 , which is as follows :
"Any treasurer who shall fail to regis
ter any warrant in the order of its pres-
eutation therefor , or shall fail to pay the
same in the order of its registrationshall
be liable on his official bond to each and
every person the payment of whose war-
rant or warrants is thereby postponed.in
the sum of $500 00 , to be recovered in a
civil action , one-half of which shall go to
the person bringing such action , and one-
half to the school fund of the county in
which the action is brought" .

sirable and useful adjunct to any house
hold or business establishment.

apiece , but on receipt of 15 cents in comer
