If all holders of receipts are not known, he shall advertise his intention by public notice in a newspaper of general circulation in the place in which the warehouse is situated or, if no newspaper is published in that place, in a newspaper of general circulation in the county in which the warehouse is situated. The owners or depositors of the commodities shall remove, or cause to be removed, the commodities from the warehouse before the expiration or cancellation of the license.
