READ THE CLASSIFIED ADS By DAVE OWEN MONA, Iowa — A sharp curve to the east on Highway 218, south of Lyle, swings automobile traf fie away from once-proud Moim preserving the small settlement on the Iowa plains. Mona, in the days of steam and horses, was a bristling town, some said destined to be one of the big: cities of northern Iowa. But tbr j fates had different plans, and to j day, it's just a settlement, set back from the highway. Let's go back through the years and see what kind of a town Mona was—way back when. First Called Hnstnd It was platted in 1869, shortly after the Cedar Falls and Minnesota Railroad Co. completed its tracks to the Minnesota border. It was called Hustad, then. Mona was the northern terminus of the railroad until December, 1900, when the railroad blazed a trail to Albert Lea through Lyle, London and Myrtle. The first station was a two-story building. Later it was replaced by a boxcar body and in 1870, a two-stall frame engine house was moved from St. Ansgar. Later a roundhouse, water tower, water softener and pumping station were erected and at the turn of the century Mona was an important shippping point on the Illinois Cen tral, successor to the Cedar Fails road. Town 10 Block* Long Just before the railroad reached Mona, Charles Hughitt and J. D. Farley purchased the land and platted a town, 10 blocks long and 3H blocks wide. Farley named the main street after himself. It is the gravel road that leads off. Highway 218 into Mona. Today, only one-third of the land MAKES TWS CHRISTMAS SUGGESTION TMtiMtht $12.88 hM a "compact" shap* and tha axclualva MICRO-TWIN Haad Enjoy now freedom from nicks and cats this safe, gentle, quick war.

CLEVELAND'S Downtown • Sterling Mona Lutheran Church Los Angeles Seeks 1st Dem Convention LOS ANGELES (AP)-A formal id to the Democratic party to wld its 1960 convention In Los An- eles will be made in Washington his weekend. Representatives of the city are lying to Washington today to pre- ent their case to the party's Con vention Site Committee. The Democratic National Committee is expected to make a decision Saturday. Oilman Edwin W. Pauley, chair man of a citizens' committee to bring the convention to Los Angeles, said $300,000 had been raised toward a $350,000 guarantee asked by the Democrats. He said ie hopes to have the rest by the time 'the convention committee meets. Los Angeles has never been host o a national party convention. It s jumping into the competition this year on the strength o, a 19,000-seat sports-and-convention arena now being built. Mona School House outh of Farley avenue is in lots, lie rest of the village has been urned back into fields. The first building was a general tore and post office. Layet, the irst hotel, was opened in 1869 and iy 1883 there were two hotels. Laer came the blacksmith, lumber /ard, elevator, saloon, and a reamery that employed 17 cream laulers and churned 9,000 pounds >f butter a month. Mona also had a medical man, )r. W. F. Cobb, who moved from Chicago. He also had the drug tore, on the bend of the pre- ent highway. Another Railroad In the midst of this business loom, the Milwaukee Road rails school, the third one on the site and the Mona Lutheran Church organized in 1876 and built i 1882. Mona, named by an early pion eer after his sweetheart who stay ee in the old country, is now horn to about 60 persons. And the don't mind that the once grea rail point isn't even a whist I stop anymore. Car Catches Fire on Way to Austin A late model car was damag ed early today when it caught fir just east of Ramsey.

But as the rails push-| ed - The {ire broke out shortly then ed northward into Minnesota, busi- after ness trends shifted and Lyle, just a mile north, became a rail cen- er with three roads, Illinois Cen- ral, Milwaukee, and Great West- :rn passing through it. Today, most of the traces of ear- y Mona are gone. Only one house tands on Farley avenue. There is ittle trace of the business district and a store on the highway is he town's only business place.
