He was paid by weekly wages, and one of his duties was to collect debts due to me, and each day to pay over the sum collected to me at the above address. On 1st September last, Henry Williams, of was indebted to me in the sum of £4 16s. for goods supplied. The receipt for this amount, produced by Mr. Williams, is in the handwriting of the aforesaid Henry Brown, but the money was never accounted for by him. He is not now in my employment.
Henry Williams on oath saith : I reside at . On 1st September last I was indebted to the deponent John Jones in the sum of £4 16s., and on that date paid the amount to his collector, Henry Brown, whose receipt I produce.
William Brown on oath saith : I reside at and am a licensed victualler. On the 27th October last a customer, named Henry Williams, whom I have not since seen, and whose address is unknown to me, came to my house and asked for change, for the cheque produced, marked A., and attached hereto. It is for the sum of £8 10s., and is drawn on the Holborn Branch of the London and County Bank, in the name of James Fletcher, and made payable to the order of Henry Williams, who endorsed it in my presence. Believing the cheque to be genuine, and that James Fletcher, the drawer, had a bonâ fide account at the bank, I paid Williams the amount of it. I have since passed the cheque through my bankers, who have returned it, marked "no effects."
James Wilson on oath saith : I am a Police Sergeant of the E division. I have inquired at the Holborn branch of the London and County Bank, and find that James Fletcher had an account there at one time, when the cheque book, including the cheque produced, was issued to him. There is still a balance of a few shillings remaining to his credit at the bank, but he ceased to be a customer there about three months ago. I have inquired at his last-known address, but he has left there, and I can find no trace of him.

METHOD OF TAKING A CAST OF A FOOTPRINT, ETC.
1. The materials which it is necessary to keep in stock for the above purpose are :—
(a) Plaster of Paris.
(b) Soft soap.
Plaster of Paris deteriorates if exposed to the atmosphere, and should therefore be kept in an airtight tin. (See Par. 7.)
The soft soap is prepared for subsequent use as follows :—Dissolve the contents of one 1 lb. tin of soft soap in two and one-half pints of boiling water; the soap is thoroughly dissolved, bottle and closely cork the solution for future use. Castor oil may be used as a substitute for the soap solution, but is less suitable.
2. Around the footprint to be reproduced construct a barrier at least one inch in height. This may be done either with clay, or with slips of wood or cardboard secured by small wooden pegs driven into the ground. If wood or cardboard is used, any interstices at corners must be closed with putty or clay to prevent the escape of the fluid plaster. The inside surface of the material used must be saturated with the soap solution, or well oiled, immediately before the plaster of Paris is poured into the mould which has thus been constructed.
3. Having estimated the quantity of plaster required to fill the mould, take water in the proportion of one and a-quarter pints to each pint of plaster of Paris. Pour the dry plaster gently into the vessel containing the water, allowing it to run loosely, so that the powder may be thoroughly soaked.
Allow the mixture to stand for about two minutes, then stir with the hand till it is thoroughly mixed. The mass should then be of the consistency of cream, and will be thickening every Moment. Pour it steadily into the mould at first, in order to ensure the filling of all interstices. If poured too quickly, air bubbles will form, and the "cast" will be useless.
4. Allow the cast to stand for half an hour, then carefully remove it from the mould. If wood or cardboard has been used around the sides and there is an inclination of the plaster to adhere to the wood, etc. tap it gently until the parts separate. Cleanse the cast from earth or clay adhering to the plaster.
5. To obtain from this cast a reproduction of the original footprint, make a tray of a sufficient size, and about one and one-half inches in depth. Coat the face of the cast liberally with the soap solution, or with oil. Fill the tray nearly full with liquid plaster prepared as in par. 3, and press the cast into the wet plaster, allowing it to remain for about half an hour.
6. Gently tap round the cast until it becomes loose. On removal, if these instructions have been carefully followed, the tray should contain a reproduction of the original footprint.
A tray such as is referred to may be readily constructed from a kerosene tin cut lengthways, and in it the reproduced footprint can be subsequently conveniently handled without danger of breakage.
7. If the plaster of Paris procured is likely to have been injured by exposure to the atmosphere, put a little strong alum water with the water used in mixing, say a wine-glass of alum water to each one and a-half pints of water.
