Transcription"Fargo.... The largest newspaper building northwest of St. Paul and Minneapolis is the new office of the Fargo Argus, of which we give a picture. Three of its floors are occupied by the business, editorial and mechanical department of the Argus, and the fourth is designed for use as lodge and society rooms. Major Edwards, the owner and editor of the Argus, is the most widely known newspaper man in North Dakota. He is enterprising, original and belligerent. He treads heavily on other people's toes now and then and don't wince when they retaliate. The Republican, managed by J.J. Jordan, is an ably and carefully edited evening paper, one of the best in the Northwest. The Sun is a small evening sheet of local circulation. The Northwestern Farmer is an excellent agricultural monthly." - Party of text the accompanies image.
