On Report of Investigating Conmittenc
Into Affairs of Asylum. Says Coml
nltteo did not do Duty.
'Columbia, Feb. 25.-Tonight the
house and senate received the gov
ernor's view of the report of the com
nittee charged with investigating con
ditions at the hospital for the insane.
The expression of the governor is em
bodied in a special message in which
"On January 20, 1914, 1 sent you
special message No. 10, in which I
called your attention to letter which
I had in my possession charging that
there was being 'an effort made to
oust Dr. Babcock from the State 1-los
pital for the Insane;' that 'Gov.
ernor Illease's underlings and satter
lites want to manipulate the sale of
that property, and the new building
df the institution out at State Park;'
and that 'an effort will be made to
smirch Dr. Unbcock and his lady as
sistant, Dr. Saundters, and as these
men must have some excuse, you
know, and are not at all scrupulous.'
"In this message I set out facts and
statements which it is unnecessary
that I should repeat here. Upon re
ceipt of this message, you appointed
a committee, under a resolution which
it is unnecessary for me to repeat, or
dering an investigation of these mat
"I notice the report of your comd
mittee has been flied and I would like
to ask the chairman, or some other
member, of that committee, please to
state if th'y have investigated the
charge 'that an effort was being made
to oust )r. Babcock,' and what the
findings of the committee were there
on; if they investigated the charge
that 'Gov. Ilease's underlings and sat
terlites want to manipulate the sale
of that property and the building of
the new institution out at State Park,'
and what their findings were; and if
they investigated the charge that 'an
effort will he made to smirch lr. Bab
cock and his lady assistant. )r. Saun
ders' and what their findings were.
"if I can read correctly their re
port they have not touched the sulb
jects which they were apolinted to
"The report dtoe: not touch in the
least the cha ges made in that letter
which I transmitted to the General
Assembly. The people, of course, will
undiersand this, and will know why
it is done and what it means.
"In mlly opinion, the concurrent res
olution which followed the report of
the committee will simply honome a
nullity. The constitution makes cer
tain provisions and the general stat
ut(s cover certain matters in connec
tion with the State lospital for the
Insane, (see s etion 335-1 down to and
including sctiot 33S5, vol 1, code of
laws of South Carolina, 1912), and
any lawyer with any ability at all and
any matn with common sense, knows
that a simple concurrent resolution
canniot chlange an act of the General
Assembly. (See also artieel -12, sec
tion 2, constitutiont of 1895.)
"The replort of your committee only
makes me more determined to exer

constitution, as I clearly see from the
report of the committee. that. the one

WEDDING RING ON HER FOOT
At Eastbourne, Ingland, resides a
$woman probably without an- equal in
the world. She was borr minus arms,
yet she can do almost anything with
her feet. Her name is Mrs. Peirce,
sand recently she attended a dinner
given to the old people of the town
by the local Lodge of Buffaloes.
She surprised everybddy present by
placing her feet upon the table, and,
picking up her knife and fork with
" marvelous dexterity, commenced to
enjoy the feast. She manipulated the
knife and fork quite as well as any
ordinary person would with her
hands, and although she looked very
I uncomfortable with her feet on the
table, she was quite at ease.
One had to look very closely to dia
cern that Mrs. Peirce was actually
'using her feet, and had anyone been
looking round and had not known of
her infirmity, they would have passed
without noticing anything, so natural
did she look.
As a housewife, Mrs. Peirce is truly
wonderful. She cooks the dinner,
cleans the house; in fact, she fuliilla
--and very creditably, too-almost all
of the (lutiea of a housewife. She
has had seven children, but of these
,six have died. The seventh. however,
is married, and Mrs. Peirce is now a
grandmother. The other children (lid
,not die early, and tip to the time of
their deaths, Mrs. Pierce did not re
quire any assistance in order to ade
quately attend to them.
This unique woman wears her wed
ding-ring on the left foot. When she
was marled she was asked if she
would care to sit down for the bride
groom to place the ring on the toe,
but she refused, and, lifting her foot
to the level of her husband's waist
with the greatest of ease, the neces
sary performance was successfully
Then, again, Mrs. Peiree can write
excellently with the left foot and can
perform the art of needlework to a
wonderful degree of excellence. She
works with the left foot and guides
the material with the right. .
When asked to "hand" anything,
Mrs. Peirce does so with perfect ease
and comfort. Should the article asked
for be on the sideboard or on the
pliano, her foot would leisurely lift
Itself up to that particular place, and
the request would be fulfilled. It is
said that Mrs. Pelrco's feet are far

NO TAXES ARE PAID HERE
The prospect of new taxes will not
perturb the inhabitants of Innishmur
ry, an Island off Sligo, Ireland, who
for many years have defied collectors
of both rates and taxes. 'There is no
direct communication with the island,
and in a recent report to the local gov.
ernment board it was stated that'the
rate collector could find no boatman
bold enough to take him across.
Some years ago two rate collectors
who tried to land in Innishmurry were
driven off by showers of stones. The
population, which consists of about 1.1
families, Is said to be a happy coi
inunity. One of the islanders. a very
old man, nets as ruler and settles any
disputes that arise, but these are rare.

BIGGEST OF SEISMOGRAPHS
This, the largest and most delicate
selsmograph ever butilt, was complet

Museum of Natural llistory, New
York. A few days after it was in
stailed it recordied an eai'thquakhe in
Alaska, :3,100 miles away. Thie ex
traordinary sensitiveness of the ini
strument is such that it ia afV eted by
heavy winds andl even waove-beats on
the sea b~each. In ordler to obtain this
freedom of motion the instrument in
stalledi in the museum, a strong frame
of angle iron supportIng thme steady
.mass, rests on a concrete pier wvhose
base is firmly cemented to the solid
rock beneath the building. The pier,
furthermore, is entirely free from con
tact with time building or its floors, so
that no local vibration can be0 tranis
mitted to the delicate registering aip
paratus. The steady masses are sus
pended in such a manner that they
act as horisontal pendulums, so that
their own piano of oscillation is tan
gent to the surface of the earth. The
horizontal axes of the masses, along
which they are free to move, are at
right angles to each other. The (lit
