" The word 'reside ' is used in two senses: the one constructive, technical, legal; the other denoting the personal, actual habitation of individuals." Richardson, C. J., in Shattuck v. Maynard, 3 N. H. 123, 124. " To constitute a domicile--that is, to acquire it-two things must concur: residence and the intention of making it the home of the party. To retain it after once acquired, actual residence is not indispensable; but it may be retained by the intention not to change it." Woods, J., in Hart v. Lindsey, 17 N. H. 235, 243. Wilson, having a legal domicile in Landaff, would not neces sarily lose it by the actual residence of himself and family in Lisbon for a temporary purpose, with no intention of making that place his home. According to the case, Wilson lived with his family in Lisbon from the fall of 1905 until the spring of 1907, finally removing them to Maine in the fall of that year. The actual habitation of the family--the place where the scholar lived with her family during this time--was Lisbon and not Landafi; and if the word " resides " was used in the statute in this sense, she did not reside in Landaff with her parents, even if her father retained a legal residence in that town for the purposes of taxation and the exercise of the right of suffrage.
