We are informed that the Illinois Central railroad company will soon move all of their effects from Mona to Lyle. The new engine house at the latter place will be occupied by the Illinois Central company, and the train men will make their headquarters at Lyle as soon as the depot and side tracks are completed. It begins to look as though Mona will soon be a deserted town, sure enough. Mr. Farley evidently knew what he was about when he disposed of $30,000 worth of real estate in that town.
