out and deliver to
the sheriff of the county in which such pawnbroker does business, on each
day before the hours of 12 o'clock noon, a legible and exact copy from
the standard record book, as required in Section 5 of this Act, that lists
all personal property and any other valuable thing received
on deposit or
purchased during the preceding day, including the exact

left in pledge, or from whom the same were purchased; provided, that in
cities or towns having 25,000 or more inhabitants,
a copy of

Such report may be made by computer printout or input memory device if the
