By the Associated Press  OAKLAND, Calif., March 19 The killing of Mrs. George Greenwood, wife of a prominent banker here, by an explosion at the Greenwood home last, night, was almost as much of a mystery early today as when Mr. Greenwood was aroused by the explosion last night, looked from upstairs window and found his wife’s body in the garden below.  In January, 1911, Mr. Greenwood received a letter demanding the delivery of $5,000 at a certain spot under penalty of having his home destroyed by an explosion. The lot -was signed ”C. C. of C.” which initials also appeared on a letter received by Governor William I).  (Stephens before the executive mansion at Sacramento was dynamited a year ago.  By tim Associated Press  PARIS, March 19. -The commission on international labor legislation held what is probably its last meeting today when it reached an I agreement on all points at issue. The American contention that each country should settle its internal labor problems without involving the powers of the league of nations, finally prevailed.  That Ada is very much alive and in favor of the annexation of a strip from Garvin county, including the town of Stratford, was demonstrated this afternoon by a large del. egation which left in autos to extend Stratford a cordial invitation to join Pontotoc county. The delegation contained men of every station of life and several ladies, all of them full of enthusiasm.  It was reported this morning that Pauls \ alley had heard of the intended trip ot the Ada boosters and that a delegation from that town would also be on hand to endeavor to counteract the effect of the visit from Ada and try to persuade the citizens of the proposed seceding district to remain with Garvin county.

"Inclusion of | the league of nations covenant in the preliminary! peace treaty will not delay the signing of the treaty I which it is hoped will be accom-' plished within two weeks,” said Lord Robert Cecil of Great Britain.' talking to British and American newspaper correspondents tonight.' He said three amendments to the* covenant have been submitted, but  :  added he was ‘ sure there would be no difficulty in meeting all legitimate objections.'* He expressed the belief that the Monroe doctrine will be strengthened by the league covenant rather than abrogated as has been contended in some circles.  Although no final decision has been reached, it is said that the' present plan of a majority of the five big nations contemplates attach*! ing the league of nations compact j to the peace treaty as an appendix. This would enable Germany to sign the treaty without securing admission to the league, although at the same time she would accept the dec-latory principles.

More people are wearing diamonds in Ada just now than ever before  1  anil people w ho never were able be-  * bon* to own a diamond. The introduction o: the new stone, the Radium diamond, has crefuted a fad in the city which is having a run.  The attractive window display of i the sparkling gems at Bart Smith’s j Drug Stone is very beautiful. It is a  * fad, but a lad that has taken among all classes. A Radium diamond has not been secured according to the  * best obtainable information, but it has given surprising satisfaction.  Ap incident during the second business day of the introduction of the Radium danionds in the city was a challenge passed between two popular young men of the city when one of the two ordered the other a scarf I pin from the selection, if he could j discover the true stone from the Radium. To prove the challenge the ! challenger took a diamond pin from his scarf in the absence of his com* j pan ion, pm in a tray with several I similar radium pius and then the I companion was asked to select the real diamond on the proposition that I if he did so he could keep the pin. The companion is wearing Radium now, and the r«>al stone is in the  1  scarf of its original possessor.  This display spoken of is to be seen in the window at Bart Smith’s Drug Si ore where they are holding a special demonstrating sale.  —— —■ •  The  ■waul HI  -IMM  • Inn  rn Uh  JUDGE YV. E.
