Land Office Notes. In the contest of John R. Rod- m n vs. Margaret A. Siders , whose homestead lies southwest of Johnstown in Cherry county , the decision of the local office is in fa vor of the entry woman. ' In the contest of Ernest Bussin- ger vs. Eleanor E. Overholt , in volving a homestead in Rock coun ty'the decision of the local office . 3 . , is against the'entrywoman. i In the contest of Amos Gudgel v.s. Ann M. Day , widow of Lewis If. Day , the general land office sustains the decision of the local olice in favor of the widow. In the case of the United States vs. Lizzie F3. Sherbins , involving Mrs. Sherbin's original entry near Brov/nlee , the general land office sustains the decision of the local office in favor of the entry woman , but requires further evidence in her final proof. By a recent ruling of the sec retary of the interior , the con structive residence which has here tofore been allowed to entry man who established and maintained a residence on their claims within six months from date of entry , has been abolished. Heretofore it has always been the rule that iV when the entryman established Vesidence on his claim within six months from date of entry , he was allowed credit , when making proof I , for the entire six months. In all final proofs taken on and after Dec. 1 , 1911 , this credit will not be given , but five years of ac tual and continuous residence will berequired in every case. This constructive residence was abolish ed in the case of cash proofs some time ago , and now the. same rule will apply to five-year proofs. In this connection it should be re membered that all who are absent under the present leave of absence act until April 15 , 1912 , must make up the time they are absent before offering final proof. Thus all who are absent under the War ren act are delaying their final proof just that much longer.
