debtor shall proceed to appraise the property in such
last named county exempted, under the provisions of
this section, by themselves or by appraisers and in

other execution as hereinbefore provided. When sales
of property are made in more than one county on the
same execution, there shall be at least five days inter-
vening between the first and each succeeding sale. If
