domicile, so as to free cases under it from the difficult and embarrassing presumptions and circumstances upon which the distinctions between domicile and residence rest. Residence is a fact easily ascertained, domicile a question difficult of proof. It is true that the two terms are often nsed as synonymous, but in law they have distinct meanings. (Bump.)
