d. To pay his taxes;

e. To serve on a jury;

f. To defend the country in the event of war;

g. To educate and improve himself;

i. To respect scrupulously the revenues and properties of the State;

j. To respect the property of others;
k. To work to maintain peace;

l. To provide assistance to persons in danger;
m. To respect the rights and freedom of others.

Failure to abide by these provisions shall be punishable by law.
