The assessments or installments thereof shall draw interest at the rate of six per cent, per annum from the time of confirmation until paid; but if any owner elects, he may pay the whole amount of the assessments, and interest, if any, accrued against his land, before it becomes due: Provided, such payment is made before any bonds are issued by the district: And provided further that where the court has, by order, directed the whole or a part of the assessment of benefits to be paid in deferred installments, that the court may, by order, direct that the interest on such deferred installments shall be collected yearly in advance.
