. Storing lint cotton; inspection tags; issuance, contents, transfer, and cancellation of receipts
(a) The state warehouse commissioner may receive for storage lint cotton, properly baled, with an inspection tag showing that it has been legally weighed and that a federal or state grader has graded such cotton.
(b) There shall be receipts issued for such cotton under the seal in the name of the commissioner, stating location of warehouse, identification mark on each bale, its weight and grade, and whether long or short staple, so as to be able to deliver on surrender of receipts the identical cotton for which each was given.

The cotton which the receipt represents shall be delivered only upon physical presentation of the receipt or satisfactory proof of loss of the receipt. The receipt shall be marked "canceled" when the cotton is taken from the warehouse.
