This facilitates the action of the legal representulive of un insane homesteader in thu mat. -tar of duties, exempting them from sidence, as in iho case of deceased homesteader. 18-After entry for a homestead has been perfected by tho person who obtained the a.iline, taking w his own person possession of the luwt nul be inning fisidi-iico theivron, tho miiiihter may, in cnBy of calamity or of illness, voucjied for hy satisfactory evidence, or in the case of Immigrant K.-t'tltT>i retuni.'ng to tlielr n.vti\e land, to briirg their families to their hoineslentls, or in other spi.cial cases, grant an exteltsion of time during which such sedller im.iy be absaui from his homei�teatl, without pre-udice to his rig'ht therein; but ihe tlmo so grnnte.-l uhuM not be reekonvd as residence."^ This tHITers from lite old act as it restricts tho privileges to perfactod entries.
