        The Argus was founded at Pine River in 1859 by D. H. Pulcifer, who
moved it to Wautoma within about two months. Before the end of the year,
he
sold to J. W. Rist and Company and it was conducted by Mr. Rist and W. C.
W-Yebb
for about two years, then it was purchased by Stowers and Lookerby. About
1865,
the Argus was purchased by Munroe and Potter, the latter selling to munroe
after a few year's experience. About 1880, R. J. T. Ellarson purchased the
Argus and, some time prior to 1900, sold a half interest to W. H. Barray,
who
later bought out his partner. They conducted the Argus to 1916 and then sold
to T. M. Risk, who edited the weekly till 1923 when R. W. Harmon, the present
editor, purchased the establishment.
