When the proof is made before any other officer, the county judge shall certify that the applicant and witnesses are of trustworthy character and entitled to credit and that the officer before whom the proof is made is duly qualified and authorized by law to administer oaths and take affidavits; he shall also certify to the citizenship of the applicant, and that the applicant has been a bona fide resident of the county for a period of six months next before the date of said application. The officer taking the proof shall administer the oath to each applicant and witness before they sign the affidavit.
