SEC. 93-13-31. Ward's property to be delivered to guardian.
When the guardian shall qualify, the court shall decree that the property belonging to the ward be delivered to the guardian. In case of a legacy, the court shall direct the delivery to be made as soon as it may appear that the same can be done without prejudice to the person administering the estate. In case of a distributive share, the court shall direct a delivery as soon as the same shall be ascertained and distribution can be had, the guardian to execute a refunding bond, if necessary. And on failure of a guardian, or other person, to comply with the decree, after due notice, his bond may be put in suit, or he may be attached, fined, and imprisoned for a contempt.
