The Municipal Judge shall turn over to the Treasurer of the County of Midland, all costs and fines in state criminal cases, and shall turn over to the City Treasurer all costs and fines in city ordinance or charter cases and shall account to both the City and County for such costs and fines on the first of each month. The provisions of this section shall in no manner affect the fees or compensation to which said Judge may be entitled for the performance of marriage ceremonies, taking acknowledgments, and administering oaths in matters not connected with any litigation begun or pending before him. The Municipal Judge shall not practice law in any manner nor engage in the business of collecting bills while in office.
