New-Year's Day in Lyons 1881

The number of ladies intending to open their houses next New-Year's day (Saturday) to their friends is fully as large as usual. Indications are that the day will be a pleasant one. With as much snow on the ground as at present, the sleighing will be good in the village; and to the festivities of the day will be added the merry jingle of the sleigh bells. The number of callers will no doubt be as large as in previous years. We publish below a list of the houses open on Saturday, and the ladies at each who will receive their friends.
