Sunbeams illuminated the brass cappuccino machine on a warm May afternoon while Maddlyn Zurawski brainstormed about how to attract the java-charged masses to her year-old establishment, Coffee Talk in Stone Harbor. Perched on an elegant brocade chair, the coffee vixen bounced ideas off customers. Caviar? Nah. Poetry reading? Maybe. Low-fat desserts and more entertainment? Definitely. Zurawski and her co-owner and boyfriend, Rich Gannon Jr., were vacationing in Colorado when they decided to open a coffeehouse at the Shore.

To keep trouble from percolating, Philadelphia's prisons are going decaf. Starting in May, the coffee served to inmates and staff will be strictly decaffeinated - breakfast, lunch or dinner. "We hope it makes them less jumpy," said William Hightower, the prison system's food service director. "Caffeine makes certain people sort of hyper, gives them personality changes. " Hightower said the idea was brewed after Prisons Commissioner J. Patrick Gallagher suffered a heart attack last fall.

Scott McNealy, chairman of Sun Microsystems, predicted that Java software would connect one's computer, automobile, job, even medical history, into a grand system of systems.

NEW YORK 'Schindler of China' A Nazi loyalist has emerged as an unlikely hero of the Rape of Nanking in 1937-38, detailing in a newly discovered diary how he saved thousands of Chinese from Japanese invaders. John Rabe, a German businessman living at the time in China, recorded the terror of those two months of murder, rape and pillage, and his efforts to help the Chinese, in his 1,200-page journal, made public yesterday. Rabe died in Germany in 1950. Iris Chang, an American author who unearthed the diary while researching a book on the massacre, likened him to Oskar Schindler, the German industrialist who protected Jews during World War II. "I refer to him as the Oskar Schindler of China," she said.

Before the end of next month, drivers on Admiral Wilson Boulevard in Camden may not be able to stop for that cup of java at all-night mini marts after 1 a.m. weekdays. And no one will be able to go to the Chinese takeouts on Federal Street after 3 in the morning for fried rice. Last night, Camden City Council unanimously approved legislation that would force eateries to close down an hour after midnight during weekdays and by 2 a.m. on weekends. If not vetoed by the city's state-appointed chief operating officer, Melvin R. "Randy" Primas Jr., the restrictions will go into effect 20 days after being published.
