On the trip of the motor train to Ann Arbor last Saturday afternoon, when the stop was made at Carpenter's Corners, the venerable Horace Carpenter came aboard, to return to his home at Ann Arbor. He had been out to his old home for the first time since the road was built, and had the novel sight of a train of cars stopping at Carpenter's Corners to receive and discharge passengers. In May, 1826, Mr. Carpenter purchased that land from the United States, when all this región was a wilderness, inhabited by wild beasts and Indians. Two or three buildings marked the infant settlement where this city now is. The Motor Line cars were not running at that time, but Mr. Carpenter was a nimble young man of 20 years, and did not need them as he does now at 85, though he is still well preserved. He has resided in Ann Arbor since his election to the County Clerk's office in 1862. - Ypsilantian.
