He died there in 1900.

What farmers knew

From the Bemidji Pioneer newspaper in 1916:  I don't recognize Alfred Vivian's name or his pic, but I clipped the article because of the doggerel there called The Wise Farmer.  Was that info common knowledge back then, or was this a really helpful article?
