94. The mortgage must also be recorded in the County Clerk's office, or in the Office of the Register.

foreclosure suit is usually commenced, and sale sure suit made, and the property must be purchased by the

mortgagee at such sale before it absolutely becomes his own. When this is not done, a formal process of advertisement is resorted to, and sale made in public, and a deed given with the same effect as in foreclosure.

97. A bond is usually given by the mortgagor, bearing even date with the mortgage, but
