A judge of the supreme court of appeals and of a circuit court
shall be entitled to an allowance for mileage at the rate of

his place of residence, to the place of holding any term of court
in a county other than that of his residence, and from such place
to his residence; and a judge of the circuit court shall be paid
the sum of thirty-five dollars per day as expenses while holding
court in a county other than that in which he resides: Provided,
That no judge of a circuit court shall be paid mileage and expenses
for holding more than ten terms of court in any county in any one
year, including regular, adjourned and special terms. The mileage
and expenses provided for in this article shall be paid to any
