During the year to come it will not only maintain its position at the front among newspapers of its class, but will strive to be better than ever before. Notwithstanding the eclipse of democracy on the ides of last November, the Argus will continue democratie as of yore. All issues discussed in its columns shall have honest treatment, however, and matters of news will be impartially given. While it already has the largest circulation of any Washtenaw paper, it will try to deserve a more extended patronage by being conducted in such a manner as to make itself a necessity in every household.
