Great Prospects for Lyle

LYLE, Minn., July 30- Some farmers in this vicinity have begun harvest. The grain in many places is very badly lodged on account of the heavy rains and there will undoubtedly be much wasted. On the whole, however, the outlook for an excellent yield is good, fifty to sixty bushels of oats per acre being predicted if the weather hold good.

Sketches of Men - Lyle

J.D.Converse, a very enterprising young man, editor of the Lyle Mirror, is among the new comers of this city. He moved here May 1, 1889, and commenced the publication of his paper; a wide-awake and good Republican, in every way worthy of success.

J.J. While, the popular landlord of the railroad eating house, is one of the most jovial landlords found on the line; is a crank on the subject of building railroads, and entertains his guest with that same chestnut. He is a good fellow and a great joker, liked by all.

Minnesota will lose one of its two dinner trains this week when the Star Clipper abandons stops in two southern Minnesota communities.

Operators of the Iowa-based dinner train say they're leaving Glenville and Lyle, Minn., because those stops haven't provided enough riders in the past year to pay the freight.

Lyle getting independent with the Mirror

Let the Austin papers remember that we are getting quite independent in Lyle, having a paper of our own. The name assumed is Mirror. May its name indicate the work it will accomplish in all that is good and only reveal enough of the bad to act as a warning. We have some things in Lyle that ought not to be reflected. We should have known nothing of the squabble between one of the Austin landlords and our councilman, Peterson, had it not been for the Mirror.

Illinois Central moving from Mona to Lyle

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.
