§59-2-15. General taxation of costs.
The clerk shall tax in the costs all fees of officers, or
other persons properly acting in lieu of officers, which the said
party appears to be chargeable with, in the case wherein the
recovery is, except that where, in any court on the same side, more
than one copy of anything is obtained or taken out, in which may be
included a copy of any pleading in a pending case, there shall be
taxed only the fee for one copy of the same thing. He shall also
tax fifty cents for each legal notice from such party therein,
served in this state, and not otherwise taxed; the costs of
executing any order of publication made in the case for such party
and of any advertisement from him in the case, made in pursuance of
law; and the allowances to his witnesses, and every further sum
which the court may deem reasonable and direct to be taxed for
depositions, taken in or out of the state, or for any other matter.
