the secretary of the interior revers
ing the action of the commissioner of
the general land office and granting
a patent to Mrs. Ida B. Welchel, for
merly Ida B. . Roberts of Wallowa,
and the decision of the commissioner
in rejecting the final proof of Wal

In the former case, the entrywo-
man, who was a nurse without other
means of support, was away from her
entry considerable of the time and
when she made proof the. forest ser
vice protested her entry, claiming
that the residence' of the claimant
was insufficient. After a number of
hearings end decisions, the commis
sioners ordered a further hearing to
take . more evidence im the case. From
this action, she appealed, and Assist
ant Secretary Pierce reversed the
holdings of the commissioner and or
dered that she be given a patent.
The case has been pending over two
years. Mrs. Welchel now resides near
Famous Shooting. Recalled.
The Smith case involved a construc
tion of the law permitting proofs to
be made where the en try man has
been absent from the homestead en
try by reason of insanity. In 1902,
Smith filed on some land near Frulta,
on the upper Imnaha river, and later
the land was placed in a forest re-
serve. Smith claims to have resid
ed upon the land from February 1903,
to October 21, 1903, when he went) to
Joseph rfor supplies, and while at the
lake city was detailed as a city po
liceman for a Hallow e'en' night; and
that while performing his duties as
such officer was shot by a thug, and
dangerously wounded; that from the
effects of such wound he .was dis
abled, and rendered incapable of
physical labor, and later became men
tally weak, the latter condition ne
cessitating 1 his confinement in an
asylum in Dakota, where his rela
tives were obliged to take him. He
never resided upon the land after
receiving the wound, and upon of
fering a proof in February 1910, show1!
lng the foregoing facts, in excuse of
his, failure to reside upon or culti
vate the land, the forest service
filed a protest. J'
. Insanity Plea Insufficient
The commissioner has now reject
ed the proof and ordered the cancel-
latlon of the entry because the proof
of Smith's residence prior to. his
insanity was unsatisfactory, and not
ing that he came back to Oregon to
make proof in person, assumes that
he had regained his normal condition
and he could have resided on the
place. Comment is also made that
while en try man married after his re
ceiving the shot, no effort was made
by either entryman or the family to
reside upon or cultivate the land

operating directly upon the liver and ali

beneficial influence extends, however, to

processes of digestion and assimilation of
