Our St. Petersburg ooneapondent gives the details of a case bearing? a somewhat different character. A little girl living in St, Patera burg wft9 sent out shopping and did not return lor several weeks. On her return she unfolded ft story which suggested that she hid been decoyed away by Jews, presumably with the usual "ritual" object. When, how ever, her nooount of nor adventure* was put to the teat it waa dieoo erod that on her way home from her nhopping expedition she had been robbed of her purehaaes, and t' rough Uμ of being punished on her return she hud emoted to run away. The "ritaal" atory was h-Vown inventr n ; and, as may be imngitud, liv (inti-Pemitio made the moet of it Until it was exposed.
