10 It is the common practice to serve a copy of the undertaking, with notice of filing indorsed thereon; but the statute does not require more than service of notice of filing.

creditor in whose behalf he was ap. pointed to bring the action has been filed. In all other cases the court may require a bond for costs from a receiver asking leave to sue, unless he shows he has sufficient property in actual possession to secure the defendant for costs.

Tuo classes of cases.] – If the object of the action is to reach specific property, the principal modes of laying hold of it before judgment are: (1) Filing a lis pendens, which fixes a specific lien upon real property; (2) Proceedings to replers, which obtain possession of personalty, or security for its forthcoming; (3) An order for delivery, or the deposit in court, of personalty, or for seizure under a lien; (4) A receivership, which fixes a lien on property of either class, and may secure its possession; (5) An injunction, which may prevent a change of title or possession of property of either class, whether within or without the jurisdiction.

Beside these aids to actions for specific relief, the remedies available in other actions also, for the purpose merely of holding the property or person of the adversary, to await the issue of a money execution, are: (6) Attachment, which in certain classes of cases may bind all or any of his property not exempt, unless he will give security for payment of an anticipated judgment : and (7) Arrest, which may hold his person, unless he will give the like security.14
