Thirty years ago Mix was a freighter and he distinctly remembers that he gathered a load of buffalo bones and went to Buffalo Park; after selling them he loaded up the printing press and material for the paper at Oberlin and actually helped set up the press for the first issue, being greatly interested in having a paper in the city. Mix has long ago quit selling bones unless covered by a good supply of fat as he has been the most extensive shipper of fat stock in Oberlin for the past twenty years. He has been president of the Farmers National Bank for the last ten years and the bank has been very prosperous under his direction.
