A "reservation" should be carefully distin- guished from an ‘exct-ption," the difference be- lvleell the two being this: By an exception, the grantor withdraws trom the elfect of the grant some part of the thing itself which is in. ease, and included under the terms of the grant, as one acre from :1 certain field, a shop or uiill standing within the iimits of the grimted premises, and the like; Whereas, a reservation. though made to the grantor. icssor, or the one creating the estate, is something arising out of the thing granted not then in case, or some new thing created or reserved, issuing or connn out of the thing granted, and not a port 0 the thing itselt, nor of anything issuing out of an- other thing. 3 Washb. Real Prop. 645.

In public land laws of the United States, a reservation is a tract of land, more or less considerable in extent, which is by public authority withdrawn from sale or settlement, and appropriated to specific public uses; such as parks, IL|IiIt<\l'y posts, Indian iauds, etc. Jackson v. WUcox, 2 Iil. 344; Meehan v. Jones (0. C.) 70 Fed. 455; Oahu v. Hui-nes (C. C.) 5 Fed. 331.

In practice, the reservation of a point of law is the act of the trial court in setting it aside for future consideration, allowing the trial to proceed me-unwhiie as if the question had been settled one way, but suhject to aiterution of the judgment in c.\se the court in bone should decide it differently.

RESIDENCE. Living or dwelling in 3. certain place permanently or for a considerrible length of time. The place where a man

'._L‘he diiference between a. residence and a dam- lciie may not be capable of easy definition; but every one can see at least this distinction. A person domiciied in one state may, for tempo- rary reasons, such as health, reside for one or more years in some other place deemed more favorable. He does not, by so doing, forfeit his domicile in the first state, or, in any propel’ sense, become a non-resident of it, unless some intention, manifested by some act, of abandon- ' residence in the first state ls shown. s Fstate v. Walker. 1 Mo. App. 404.

"Residence" means a fixed and permanent abode or dweiiing-place for the time being, an contradistinguishcd from u mere tcinpora y locality of existence. So does “inliabitancy: and the two are distinguishable in this respect frgra ‘1‘domicile." In re Wrigley, 8 Wend. (N. .)

As they are used in the New York Cndc of Procedure, the terms "residence" and "resident" mean legal residence; and legal residence is the place of It man's fixed habitation, where his pu- iitical rights are to be exer<i.~:ed, and where he is iiabie to taxation. Houghtou v. Ault. 16 How. Prue. KN. Y.) 77

A distinction is recognized between legal and actual residence person may a legal resi- dcnt of one place and an actual resident of an- other. Hc may abide in one state or country without surrendering his legal residence in an- other_ it he so intends. His icgai residence may be merely ideal, but his actual l‘€SI(iFEltP must be substantial. He may not actually abide at his iegal residence at all, but his actual residence must be his abiding piiice. Tipton v. Timon. 87 Ky. 2-13, 8 S. W. 440: Hinds v.
