GRANBY, Mass., July s.—Why is the average woman more afraid of a mouse than of her husband's wrath over her milliner's bill? Why, at the sight of a wee, Inoffensive rodent, will she fly screaming to a table or chair to the accompani ment of a reckless display of hos iery? And can anybody under the sun explain why the nervy young woman who will grapple with and capture a burglar and turn him over to the police, will pull off a lovely fainting fit if somebody shouts, "Look at the mouse!" Absolutely for the first time in befrilled womanhood, a real, live and normal woman has advanced to the firing line with answers to the foregoing questions. This daring woman is Miss Abbie E. 0. Lathrop, the owner of a successful mouse farm at Granby, Mass. She raises yearly from 8,000 to 10,000 rats and mice for medical laboratories. "Woman's fear of the mouse," says Misa Lathrop, "I believe dates back to the Garden of Eden. There can be no possible doubt about it, for as far back as I have been able to go in the history of the world, women have hopped, skipped and jumped at the sight of B mouse. "Now, there is only one way to account for this feminine fear of rats and mice. There were rodents in the Garden of Eden, and Mother Eve got mortally afraid of them for some reason or other. Of course being afraid of a mouse in her day was not such a luxury as it is to Sh-the Chef Nibbles Not at Those Delicious Viands Did it ever occur to you that chefs might, at times, suffer from the effect of their cooking? Funny, isn't it, that a chap who oversees the public's feeding, might repent a meal of their own conception. Few do or, at any rate, few admit that they have ever been afflicted with the pangs of indigestion. A round of Spokane's grillrooms brought to light that only one of the seven visited had a chef who had repented the fact that he was a culinary artiste. The other six offered a lucid explanation. "Why, said No. 1, "would you expect a chef to own up to getting indigestion from his own cooking, even if he did get his once In a while? Not much. If we did, our jobs wouldn't last long. Hut listen, and I'll tip you off to the one best bet. "We don't, as a rule, look thin, do we? Well, we don't try to make the milk and honey diet go all the time. Once in a while we get careless, and cut loose on the big stuff, but only when tbe next day ain't a working one. "None of your 'a las' for us. Why, man, if we played that com bination a week steady, we'd never be able to eat again. I'm telling you right when I say that we live simpler than 90 per cent of the chaps who are doing the doublo act on |ll per. "Believe me, none of this high spice and wine in ours. Just plain beer and the chewing stuff on the same line is what we ship our way. lip to you to get around the. heavy dope. We work for a living, and we've got to keep our health." Nearly every one of the six had a tale along the same line, with the exceptiou of No. 3. Ho was peculiarly laconic in tbe extreme, he didn't care to talk. Finally he slipped In a confidential wink. "I eat at home," said he, In sotto voice. No. 7 was tbe chap that gave the game away. "Never again for me," he remarked, with a mournful droop of the head. "I tried six months of grillroom feeding, but I'm wise now. Milk and bread for Fern Cafe 322 RIVERSIDE AVENUE. Now Open for Business Satin new management. Just a little better than the rest. THE. SPOKANE PRESS NEWS FOfl present day women, for Eve had no fine hosiery or expensive frills to display in the grotesque move to safety. "In very rare cases, a woman will be born into the world without the inheritance of the fear of the mouse. I happened to be one of them, and I consider it a great p.ece of good fortune for I have been able to raise rats successfully and to make a living that would be the envy of many women imbued with the 20th century commercial spirit." In her rodent family, Miss Lath rop has mice of 10 different colors and 20 combinations of color. White Is ordinary and black is not star tling, but when it comes to cream colored mice or orange mice, one is surprised. She also has silver, blue and agouti mice. Ihe red mice are much the color of the boy of a horse, and the blue mouse is about the color of a Maltese cat. The agouti mice have dark brown hair with yellow tips which gives a gold en brown effect. Her silver mice with ruby eyes are the rarest com binations. One of the most remarkable things about Miss Lathrop's farm is her Angora cat, "Tab." This feline will not allow a strange cat «m the farm and she protects Miss Lathrop's rats and mice from the wild rodents. Sometimes one of Miss Lathrop's mice will escape from its cage, but "Tab" will not kill it. Instead, it will place it carefully between its jaws and bring it unharmed to its mistress. and 20 me for nearly a year before I got back on my feet. There is no cure for this grillroom indigestion, eith er. If we get too much of it, we simply have to lay off until our systems get over the jolt. But the best way and the way most of us do ffe to stay away from the swell nibblings altogether." So you see that a chef's life is not what it appears to be on the surface. Over 70,000 people visited the dif ferent resorts in and around Spo kane yesterday. Natatorium and Recreation parks seemed to be the best favored, while t.iberty lake re ceived the largest number for the out-of-town resorts. Thomas Hayden, who was arrest ed in Tacoma a week ago. will be brought to this city to stand trial for a number of robberies, if the Seattle authorities do not hold him. Alex.

By Sttkart B. Stone. The secretary of war arose. "I cannot extend the Interview," he said firmly. "Your machine has its theoretical points, but it is experi mental " "I have broken all speed rec ords," interrupted young Dana. "But next time you will turn someaault. The Dubarrow is a tried success." "It is clumsy," put in the In ventor. "But sure," continued Secretary Mason. "And with Japan ready to pounce upon our western coast, with the certainty that aerial su premacy will determine the victory, it is no time for experimenting. Good day." Truxton Dana did not accept the hint. "Then I am at liberty to ne gotiate with -the Japanese govern ment?" he asked. The secretary frowned. "Ye-e-s. There has been no declaration of war, no severance of diplomatic re lations. Technically you are at lib erty. If your machine is what you claim, however, as a patriot, I do not see how you could " Young Dana interrupted. "But I am an inventof, sir. Good day." Next day the Washington Intel ligencer declared that Truxton Dana, the brilliant young inventor, had contracted with the Toklo war office for 300 of his aeroplanes of the Metacomet type. The announce ment brought forth a storm of dis approval, and Dana was denounced for putting love of money above love of country. Time passed, diplomats dawdled, Japan hastened. Three months later the entire North Atlantic fleet was ordered westward through the Panama canal. Before the fleet had passed the Tortugas the first gun of the world's first aerial war was fired. A p<}uadron of Japanese vessels ap peared suddenly off Oavite.

The few Dubarrow machines were hauled out, but before they could be made ready, their swifter rivals had reduced the fortifications. Inside of an hour the sun flag floated from the governor general's residence, and the Japanese occupancy of the archipelago was accomplished. With cables severed, with every wireless apparatus out of commis sion, with the superiority of the Japanese fleet established, the American people waited.
