Genoa, April 17 (By the Associated
Press).?George Chicherin, head
of the Russian delegation, discussing
tonifht the Russo-German treaty,
said negotiations for a full resumption
of diplomatic relations between
Germany and Russia had been in progress
'"the place and the time of the signatures,"
M. Chicerin added, "must
not be interpreted as indicating that
the two governments intended special
significance in concluding the
treaty at the Genoa conference rather
than elsewhere. The treaty was
contemplated long ago.

have wiped out the past and replaced
the Bfest-iLitovsk treaty jy new relations,
granting 'both peoples the same
rights and establishingg a secure basis
for peaceful, common work, the
two governments thus place themselves
on a firm basis.''
The German foreign minister, Dr.
Rathenau, calmly discussed the Russo-German
treaty, which has created
such excitement among t^e allies,

delegations. He explained that the
negotiations between Ruisia and Germany
for the conclusion of the present
treaty were conducted for several
months and happened to be finished
Easter Sunday, which we considered
a good omen not only for the contracting
parties, but the entire
Europe; indeed, the world at large.
The French delegation in an official
statement denounnced the treaty
bitterly and declared that France
would not change her attitude and
would exact from the Soviet government
recognition of debts and restitution
of confiscated property.
The spokesman of the Italian delegation
discussing the Russo-Geiman
treaty tonight, said he was convinced
that it would not bring about a happy
result in the conference but he considered
it deplorable from the Gerand
commerce, early in February and
ened the thesis of those who main-j
tain that it is impossible to treat with
the Germans. Nothing better could
be invented to support the Frencn
viewpoint, in his opinion, he said.

Death of Mrs. Mary Shealy
Mrs. Mary Jane Shealy, beloved
wife of Earle Shealy, was stricken
with apoplexy on Saturday, April 8th.
She was formrely in good health and
her suddei: illness was a severe shock
to her family and many friends. Every
effort of medical skill and kindly
attention was made in her behalf. She
lived only until Thursday morning,
April 13. Her age was 66 years, 10
months and 23 days.
She is survived by five children,
Mrs. Oscar Wood, Mrs. Frank Cul

children, four brothers, and two sisters,

Mrs. Dora Derrick of Columbia.
The funeral service was conducted 1
at the home one mile east of Newberry
on last Friday afternoon at 4
o'clock by Pastor W. H. Dutton and
Dr. C. A. Freed. The interment was
in Rosemont cemetery.
Mrs. Shealy was a member of the
Summer Memorial Lutheran church,
to which she remained faithful until
death. She set an example of Christian
and nipfv. She was a kind
'mother, rot only to her own but to
many others who enjoyed the benevolence
of her heart; even the servants
o:a the farm mourn the loss of \
their dearest friend. The hospitality
of her home was always the same,
kind and true: She was a devoted
wife, a true friend, an obliging neighbor.
Her memroy is made fragrant
bv the wholesome influence and beauty
of a God-fearing and loving he^irt.
Its kind is precious and enduring.

Keep the Baby Quiet at Night.
