H. W. WRIGHT keeps the best seasoned Doors. TOWN OF MT. PLEASANT. 227 the fall of 1874, Mr. S. A. Sage, in partnership with Win. I. Carpenter, built a large and well constructed building and engaged in the business of pressing hay. Subsequently, Mr. Sage purchased the interest of Mr. Carpenter, and alone continues the business. Twelve hundred tons of hay was put up at this press the first season, and nearly three times that amount the season following. The Post office is named Johnson, though a change of name to Western Union Junction is early expected, a petition having been forwarded to Washington for that purpose. The Depot is under the immediate charge of Mr. Phillip R. Frey, an old and experienced railroad man, than whom a more honest, capable and accommodating railroad official cannot be found. The present population of the village is upwards of one hundred, the majority of whom are railroad employees. To those seeking a place of business, or a quiet home, no better oppor- tunities are afforded than at Western Union Junction. VILLAGE DIRECTORY. Austin Geo. E., telegraph operator, bds H. M.
