A constable cannot recover his fees for serving a writ unless he makes return upon the writ of the particular fees charged. Van Etten v. Selden, 36 Neb. 209, 54 N.W. 261 (1893).
This section does not apply to a sheriff's fee for care, preservation, and custody of attached property because the statute provided compensation for officers serving orders of attachment does not provide compensation for such services. Reed v. Smith, 25 Neb. 64, 40 N.W. 591 (1888).
