Yanceyville News Notes

Yanceyville, N. C. Dec 2 – Caswell county Superior court will commence next Monday with Judge Henry P. Lane of Reidsville presiding and Solicitor S. P. Graves of Mt. Airy representing the state.

The newly elected county officers will be inducted into office Monday.

Sheriff J. H. Gunn, Register of Deeds H. S. Turner and the county commissioners succeed themselves. R. S. Graves succeeds R. L. Mitchell as clerk of the court. While the people are delighted to welcome B. S. Graves to the office of clerk of the court, there is genuine regret over Mr. Mitchell’s exit from the office which he has filled as faithfully and so well for twenty years. Mr. Mitchell was not a candidate for the nomination.

The work of installing the electric lights and water plant in the court house will be completed Saturday.

Miss Helen Florence [Florance] entertained at a beautiful bridge party Tuesday. The hospitable home with its beautiful old mahogany furnishings, cheerful fires, and lovely flowers was most inviting.
