HUTCHINSON NEARLY ESTAB LISHES ONE YESTERDAY. If She Passed a Forged Check She Must Have Done It on the Jump—What the Witnesses Proved. Mrs. M. I. Hutchinson, who was ar rested several days ago on a charge of forgery, had her preliminary examina tion before Justice Stanton yesterday, and was held in $1000 bonds to answer in the superior court. The evidence put in by the prosecu tion showed that a woman purchased four pairs of shoes at the Mammoth shoe house on September 24th, and ten dered a check in payment, which she signed in the presence of the cashier of the establishment. The check was signed Fred Mace, and purported to be endorsed by his wife. The cashier gave the woman the change, and the check wag sent to the bank, which refused to honor if. Mr. Mace pronounced the signature a forgery, and Mrs. Hutchin son was arrested at Pomona, where she resides, on the charge of committing the crime. The clerk who sold the shoes and the cashier both positively identified the prisoner as the pesson who passed the check, and a pair of shoes worn by one of her children were identified as having been in the store by certain factory marks which witnesses swore were not to be found in any other shoe store. The defense started out to prove an alibi and very nearly succeeded. If the testimony of witnesses as to the hours they saw the prisoner at Pomona on the day named in the complaint is true, and if it is also true that she is the woman who made the purchase, the scheme was very nicely calculated and perfectly carried out. In the first place Mrs. Hutchinson positively denied anyjknowledge of the forged check or tlje Mammoth phoe house, but she would not divulge the name of the person from whom she ob tained the shoes found in her posses sion. A number of witnesses were placed on the stand and swore that they saw her in Pomona on the day in question. She was seen at 8 o'clock iD the morning and again shortly after 1 o'clock. At 5 o'clock she was in a store at Pomona and made some purchases. The witnesses for the prosecution testified that the shoes were purchased by her between 3 and 4 o'clock. The defense argued that it would be a physical im possibility for a person to leave Pomona after 1 o'clock, make purchases between 3 and 4 o'clock and get back to Pomona at 5. Time tables were introduced by the prosecution showing that a person could take a train which leaves Pomona be tween 1 and 2 o'clock, and by hurrying from the depot make the purchase of the shoes and leave again on the 3:55 train from this city, which gets into Pomona a few minutes of 5 o'clock. On this showing and by reason of the prisoner's refusal to tell where she obtained the shoes, the court decided the case was one for a jury decide upon. Health In Old Age. EdwardCollinson, Queens, N V., says: '•I commenced using Brandreth's Pills over fifty-live years ago. I first bought them in London, and have continued using them since I came to this country in 1836. I am now over 75 years old, hale and hearty, and at tribute my wonderful health to the persißtent use of Brandreth's Pills. Occasionally I have a bad cold or severe attack of rheuma tism, indigestion or biliousness, but four or five dosesof Brandrrth's Pills always cure me. Whenever my children have been sick with scarlet fever, measles, mumps, acid stomach, disordered digestion or costiveness, a few doses of Brandreth's Pills restore their health at once."

The Maze of San Francisco started in to do the finest trade in men's foot wear in San Francisco, and with this in view, put in a stock accordingly. Their busi ness grew to such proportions that they found their store room not large enough to accommodate their business, and not being able to obtain more, were obliged to give up several lines of goods, among which were their men's shoes. They sent us down their entire stock to be sacrificed.
