RULES OF 3-YEAR
Fnim The Irish .Ww
Under the provisions of the Three
Year Homestead law. the compulsory
period of residence i reduced lrom five
to three years. As in the General
Homestead Law, however, two yean
leeway is Kiven, and final proof may be
sobmittei at any time after tnrve and
up to five years. With regard to thU
latter, one point must te borne h
mind and that is that no matter what
the length of residence before aubrcltt
ing proof, entryman should not te ab
sent from bis homestead for more than
six months at any one time.
Another provision of the new law
stales that an absence of not more
than five months out of each year in
consecutive term may te granted, but
letter should be first written to the lo
cal land office giving number of entry,
description of lands, and the dates on
which entryman expects to bo absent.
On his return from such aosence an
other letter should be written giving
the date on which he again tool, up
residence. Leave of absence cannot be
continued from one year to another,
as for instance taking in the la?t five
Months of 1912 and the first five months
While the period of residence has
been reduced as above indicated, the
new law is made more severe in that
it requires a certain number of acres
to be put into cultivation, as folkws:
Beginning ith the second year from
'date of entry, at least one sixteenth of
the area; beginning with the third
year from date of entry and until proof
is offered, at least one eighth of the
area. Ibis provision applies to both
160 and 320 acre homesteada, or any
part thereof. Kor inelance.jn a home
stead of 80 acres, 5 acres should be put
under cultivation beginning with the
second year and 10 acres beginning with
the third: on a homestead of 160 acres,
10 acr?e should be put under
tion beginning with the second year,
and 20 acres beginning with the tr.ir.l;
on a homestead of 320 acres, 20 acres
Further, a man may tile on 100 acres
of such 'Mes-gnated" lands, under the
Act of Feb. 19. 1909, and later file on
an additional 160 acrea, provided same
adjoining his original entrf contiguous
farm and had been designated ; and
provided also that he is otherwise en

THE LESSON OF ONE WOMAN, I
From The Irish Xe ns
The origin.ot the word "Fire Water"
has been a mystery to many people
and the following' may serve to clear
up any misapprehension on the subject.
When employees of the Hudson Bay
Trading Company began trading among
the Indians it was found that by selling
Indians liquor they could more easily
be induced to dispose of their peltries.
The whiskey was brought over from
England in large barrels and on arrival
here was divided up into small kegs for
j transportation rver land. Traders soon
became aware of the fact that by dilut
ing the whiskey with some water more

I could be secured from the sale of it.
I This practice of diluting the whiskey
was carried on for sometime, but it did
which had been diluted would quench
the fire. It was by this simply experi
ment that the term "fire wster" be
came a common one among the Indians.
