                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.
