Sterling Daily Standard, April 2, 1904

St. Mary's Church, Tampico

The story in the Chicago Chronicle this morning stating that a cyclone had destroyed the Tampcio Catholic church and otherwise damaged the town was wholly unfounded. There was no storm at Tampico and how the story got into the Chicago papers is a mystery to Tampico people.
