holds the lien or mortgage notes before the county clerk is permitted to place said deed or mortgage to record in his office This provision is intended to reach persons holding lien notes or moil

te liable for the payment of state and county taxes thereon until the record in the clerks office will show that the note has either been paid or transferred to another person Therefore when a mortgage note is paid it is neces nary thtt the holder shall go to the clerks office and release the lien ot record by endorsing on the margin of the mortgage or deed that the said notes have been paid or that they have been transferred to an other person giving the name and postofSce address of such other per sonRecently some County Clerks have been compelled to refuse to place several deeds
