A blood ritual charge against the Jewish flour merchants, the brothers Pastolski, in the village of Prushkov, worried the Jews for a few hours today. When an eight year old boy disappeared the mother charged the Jewish merchants with the ancient libel. While the police searched the house of the Pastolski brother, and much excitement was caused, the missing child returned from a visit to a neighboring village.
