PENNSYLVANIAN THINKS "SLIGHTLY DEMENTED" WIFE
IS IN ROCHESTER; SAYS SHE HAS MANIA FOR LEAVING
Leaving her husband and seven children at Mansfield, Pa., Mrs. Susie WOOD, 36 years old, is believed to have come to this city. Her husband, Gilbert Wood, arrived in Rochester yesterday afternoon and asked the police to assist in looking for his wife. WOOD said that his wife was "slightly demented" and given to wandering away from home. This was the third time that she had left this year, he added.
WOOD is confident that no man is involved in the disappearance and that his wife is working some place in Rochester, he told the police. The couple have four girls and three boys. The oldest child is 18 years old and the youngest 2 years. They live on a two-hundred-acre farm. They have been married nineteen years.
Mrs. WOOD is five feet, two inches in height, weights 110 pounds and has dark hair and brown eyes. When she left home on September 25th she wore a blue winter coat. WOOD said that in the summer his wife developed a mania for leaving home. He explained that at times she was contented to stay at home but that this would wear off.
"My wife’s present employer is getting the finest help in the land, for she has run my home for nineteen years and I know what she can do," WOOD told the police.
WOOD declared that his wife did not quarrel with him before she left. He said that she had written to a neighbor, but urged that her whereabouts be kept a secret. WOOD does not know that his wife is in Rochester. The neighbor refused to tell him Mrs. WOOD’S address, but WOOD said "she beat ‘round the bush so that I got the idea it was Rochester."

GEORGE EASTMAN TO PRESIDE AT HARDING MASS MEETING
Somerset, Ky., Oct 14 - (On board Senator Harding's Special Train)
With Senator Harry S. NEW, Senator Warren G. HARDING discussed to-day a schedule of appointments for the remainder of the campaign. Senator NEW is chairman of the Republican speakers bureau and is understood to have brought additional information bearing on the candidate's proposed eastern trip. It was said, however, that it was still an open question whether the trip would be made.
Should the October 21st address be delivered in Buffalo, as has been formally announced, it is likely that there also will be a speech in Rochester, N. Y. It is understood that as the plans now stand appearance in those two cities are more likely than a visit to New York city.
On Senator HARDING'S train it was regarded as certain that he would decline the invitation issued from New York last night to debate the League of Nations issue with Governor COX. From the start of the campaign the Republican nominee and his managers have been opposed to any plan for a joint debate.
Complete arrangements for Senator HARDING'S expected visit to Rochester next Thursday will be made by the Republican County Committee despite the uncertainty regarding the presidential nominee's ability to fill the engagement. The party leaders here are confident that Senator HARDING will come and plans for his visit will be continued until definite advise to the contrary are received.
George EASTMAN consented yesterday afternoon to act as chairman of the meeting in Convention Hall. James L. HOTCHKISS, county chairman, said that it was likely that an overflow meeting would be held. The Republican marching clubs will be called out to serve as Senator HARDING'S escort.

CHILDREN CALLED TO TESTIFY IN COURT
Witnesses in Damage Suit; Aratl Wins Two Cases
"Looks like school is just letting out," commented a court attendant yesterday afternoon in the Court House when Attorney Robert E. KEEFE led a troupe of boys into the court occupied by Justice B. M. STEPHENS.
It wasn't a school, but several of the youngsters will be absent from their school rooms this morning for they all had been called to testify in an action brought by Theodore WHITNEY, by guardian, against Isaac MARGOLIS to recover $5,000 damages, which occurred as the result of an automobile accident at the corner of Bay and North Goodman streets on April 12th.
The case itself is peculiar in its features, for MARGOLIS was not in the car at the time of the accident, but was home eating his dinner. MARGOLIS had secured Herbert RATHKE, a 17-year-old lad, to teach him how to drive his new car, and after they had put in a morning practicing MARGOLIS went home to dinner. The youngsters asked MARGOLIS if he couldn't take the car to his home, and the owner consented. While RATHKE was on his way home he hit the WHITNEY boy with the machine. WHITNEY then brought suit against MARGOLIS to recover damages. Arthur PAMMENTER appears for MARGOLIS.
Two judgments were returned yesterday to clients of Attorney Percival D. OVIATT, Nathaniel M. BOWIE was awarded $1,073.50 AGAINST THE Rochester Carting Company, and Alden L. COVILL was awarded $950 against Otis BARBER.
