Mr. Charles H. Mason, for some time past the efficient commercial traveler for Saxton & Thompson, flour dealers, Troy, has severed his connection with that firm to engage in business with his grandfather, Mr. Henry J. Mason, the well known furniture dealer and undertaker. He will act as accountant for the house and it is his intention to acquire a knowledge of the business in all its details. The young man has ample ability and all the qualifications necessary for a successful business career, and his hosts of ardent friends will wish him god-speed in his new enterprise.
