Payment of the liens imposed under the terms of this act shall be made to the county treasurer as follows: One-fifteenth of said principal with interest thereon, on or before five years from said filing in the register of deeds office, and one. fifteenth of the same each year thereafter until the full principal sum and interest is paid.

The fees of the said register of deeds shall be paid by the county and shall be charged proportionately to each tract of land, and said statement filed in the office of the register of deeds, after the same has been recorded, shall be returned to the county clerk; to be by him placed with the other papers relating to such improvement, and carefully preserved by him. For default in the payment of any of the installments all shall become due, and after such owner of the tract shall be in default ninety days on any one installment the county clerk shall call upon the prosecuting attorney of the said county, and the prosecuting attorney is hereby directed, after receiving such request from the county clerk, to take proceedings in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce the lien on said land conferred by the provisions of this act.

Sec. 18. Should any provision or section of this act be held to be invalid for any reason, such holding shall not be construed as affecting the validity of any remaining portion thereof, it being the legislative intent that the act shall stand, notwithstanding the invalidity of any such provision or section.
