2. Such clerk shall retain out of the money received for such license issued the sum of ten cents, which shall cover all his services under sections 273.040 to 273.180, and he shall pay the balance and all other sums received by him under the provisions of sections 273.040 to 273.180, less the cost of license tags, record books, blank applications and affidavits and the cost of transmitting the balance to the treasurer of the county.

The county commission of each county in this state is authorized to expend and draw county warrants against such fund only as herein provided; provided, that sections 273.040 to 273.180 shall not be construed to prevent suits at law for damages caused to livestock or poultry by dogs.
