The number of imported oddities and novelties in. fancy goods is far in ex ­ cess, and the. articles are much more unique and beautiful than ever before. The entirely new things alone in our toy department would require a paper much larger than this to give even a skeleton de scription of. Of fancy leather goods, hand-bags, pocket-books, segar cases; etc., we took good care to obtain an ample sup ­ ply and immense variety. With regard to our book department we only wish to say that it is first-class in every particular and will compare favorably with any of the book stores of the larger cities. Besides the above mentioned goods we took pains to secure man}' novelties suitable for pres­ ents in the staple lines of goods, such as gloves, silks, satins, hoisery, housekeeping linens, neckwear,- colored dress goods, jewelry, toilet articles, stationery, laces, fichus, handkerchiefs, mufflers, children ’ s fancy caps, bath robes, ladies ’ and gents ’ underv/ear, etc., etc. In conclusion a cor ­ dial invitation is extended to the entire public to pay the Troy Bazaar a visit at once, for in tliat way better than any other can an idea of the variety, immensity and grandeur of our stock of new goods, pur ­ chased expressly for the holiday trade, be obtained.

The bill provides that town and city auditing boards may provide such sums as shall be needed for the support of indigent and suffering sol ­ diers and sailors, to be drawn upon by the commander and quartermaster of any post upon the recommendation of its relief com ­ mittee. A post must file a notice with the city or town clerk of its determination to undertake the relief of such indigent per ­ sons, and renew the same every October, together with a report in detail of its doings in each case. The officers of such post may be required to give bonds for the faith ­ ful discharge of their duties. Superin ­ tendents and overseers of the poor are pro- hibi-^d from sending indigent soldiers or their families, or the families of dead sol ­ diers, to the alms-house or orphan asylum without the full consent of the commander and \committee of the post having the case in charge. When practicable such soldiers and their families must be taken care of at home. ; Dr. Daniel Sargeant, of Hudson, an aged physician retired from practice, had a habit of amusing himself at a work-bench located in a little building in rear of his residence.
