If someone doesn’t show up in court or says the document is false (after it was proven to be a good document), how much time to you give someone before you allow the other side to demand the money from his property?  What does it depend on?  An adrachta is the document they write allowing him to demand the money from the other person’s property.  Once this is written, the person needs to be informed that is has been written.  Details of how one is informed and how long we need to wait to ensure he is informed are discussed.  When a subpoena is send with a woman or neighbor, under what circumstances, can we assume they relayed the message and when can we assume that they didn’t think they were being relied on to deliver it and maybe never did?  There are certain times of year and times of the week when people are busy and therefore shouldn’t be subpoenaed to court.  The next mishna deals with non Jewish tax collectors and various things one can do to avoid paying taxes.  When questioned by Shmuel’s statement dina demalchuta dina, the law of the land is the law, the gemara differentiates between tax collectors who collect by law and those who don’t.  THe another case is brought which leads to the question of whether stealing from a non Jew is considered stealing or not.
