During the last quarter of this year Mr. Brewster earned fees amounting to $750, but It vitis an exceptionally good quarter. At that rate he would earn his salary and divide $1,400 with the county. Last year the sheriff drew $2,000; this year he gets $2,250. He Is never able to collect fees enough to'pay himself. The register of deeds beats them all. Last year he was allowed $1,200; this year he is to get $1,400, dividing all fees over that amount with the county. During the last quarter he collected $1,474.95. Could he make the same record for the four quarters he would take in $5,899. Deducting $1,400 from this would leave $4,499, of which he would get half, or $2,249, making his year's salary $3,649.
