p. viii., сн. v. INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING STAMPS, &c. 337

the exact amount of the fee which is to be paid in each particular
case. Consular Stamps offered by private persons cannot be accepted
for paying the Consular Fee, and must be, as far as possible, impounded
by the Consular Officer and sent to the Superintending Consul. Should
forged Stamps, or such as have been used before, be offered in
discharge of fees, an inquiry must be made by the Consul, and any attempt
to use such Stamps must be prosecuted by the law.

13. Consular Stamps are paid for by the interested parties in
local currency, reckoning the total amount to be paid, not each Stamp
separately, at the normal rate of exchange set forth by the Russian
Government.

14. The Revenue Stamps are affixed to documents or receipts by the
Consular Officer or his representative after they have been paid for.
They must not be disposed of to the public uncancelled. Money
paid for them cannot be refunded.

15. After the Stamps have been affixed to a document or receipt
they must be cancelled by means of an official stamp or by crossing
them with the pen or by using special instruments for that purpose.
The mark of cancellation must cross the border of the stamps and be
visible on the paper. Besides, each Stamp must bear the inscription
of the date of its cancellation.

It is desirable from a practical point of view to use, as far as possible,
the stamps of a higher value and to retain as long as possible the
stamps of a lower value.

The stamps must be cancelled in the following way:—

As the Stamps bear only the amount in Russian currency, the
corresponding amount in local currency must be mentioned under
the Stamps.

16. If Stamps, which have been paid for, should be damaged
accidentally by the Consular Officer or by his representative, such
Stamps must be replaced.

17. The damaged Stamps must be accounted for in the yearly
accounts and sent to the superintending Consul.

r8. The account book of the Stamps must be balanced on the first
date of each month and signed by the Consular Officer. The form
for such books is given in Annex 1.
