Editor's note: When a stranger comes to Kosnov and accuses Mendel the butcher of stealing his money, the whole town joins in to show the police who is really guilty.For many weeks, the sign sat in the window. Then one day, late in the afternoon, a gentleman came into town and stopped in front of the butcher shop window. He was wearing a wide-brimmed black felt hat trimmed with fur and a fine cloth coat. Mendel went to the door."Mr. Butcher," said the stranger, tipping his hat, "you are looking at a very lucky man. After traveling so far, I was worried indeed that upon arriving I would find your shop already rented."

The Mount Washington resident was 86. Born in Baltimore and raised in Reservoir Hill on Lake Drive, he grew up in a family where Yiddish was the primary language. His father, Hyman Friedman, was a traveling salesman in the wholesale tobacco and candy trade, and his son accompanied him to watch him sell pipes, paper goods and candies.

If it weren't for the free Southwest Airlines ticket, Nicole Schiffman wouldn't have flown across the country to Arizona State University to celebrate her friend's 20th birthday. But she had the ticket, her aunt, Audrey Pecarsky, said wistfully yesterday - taking the University of Maryland, College Park sophomore to a celebration with her childhood girlfriend that took a tragic turn when both were fatally shot by a man in a double-murder and suicide early Sunday in Tempe, Ariz. "She was the kindest, sweetest, most good-natured soul that I ever knew," said Pecarsky, speaking from Schiffman's home in Merrick, N.Y. "She didn't even know this guy. He never met her. She never met him."

"Mendel's Dwarf," by Simon Mawer. Harmony. 310 pages. $23.Dr. Benedict Lambert, the narrator of Simon Mawer's fifth novel, is a dwarf with little time for euphemism or social niceties. Rejecting the labels "vertically challenged" and "little people" as well as vaguer adjectives like "diminutive" and "courageous," he prefers to describe himself as "an aberration, a mutant, the product of pure, malign chance."He is, after all, well versed in the science of mutation. A lecturer in molecular genetics at the Royal Institute for Genetics in London, Lambert's expertise lies in his research on the genetic mutation that causes his own condition: achondroplasia, or dwarfism.

THIS IS ABOUT the hunger of memory, the human desire to know how families start out in faraway villages no longer located on maps and wind up in America, in cities such as Baltimore. It's about a woman named Lynn Weisberg, who seems to have contacts everywhere on the planet, including a place called Libau, Russia. And it's about a woman named Zipora Struhl, whose journey started so many others more than a century ago. Zipora was 55 years old on that December day in 1897 when she arrived in America from Libau.

Ask any scientist, and he'll tell you who the top dog in the laboratory is today: It's the mouse. In less than a century, these rodents have managed to go from pest to pet research subject, with more than 25 million used in labs around the world. How they managed it is a tale that involves a retired schoolteacher, a descendant of Paul Revere, two auto industry barons -- plus a bit of animal incest. It all starts in 1900 with Abbie E.C. Lathrop of Granby, Mass. Lathrop was a 32-year-old former schoolteacher who had moved to Granby around that time with the notion of starting a poultry farm.

Gertrud A. Mendels, a survivor of the 1939 voyage of the steamship St. Louis whose cargo of German Jewish refugees was denied admittance at Cuban and American ports on the eve of World War II, died Wednesday of cancer at Keswick Multi-Care Center. The Mount Washington resident was 86. Gertrud Scheuer, then 24 and a native of Framersheim, Germany, was among 930 Jewish refugees who fled Europe aboard the Hamburg-America Line's St. Louis in May 1939. As the ship steamed away from Hamburg, she stood on the stern and watched her homeland disappear over the horizon while dreaming of a reunion with her fiance, who had immigrated to Baltimore a year earlier.
