Tampico Tornado
Thurs., July 7, 1927


Mrs. Minerva Lyon sold her residence property and household goods at the premesis at south Benton Street  last Saturday afternoon at public auction. There was a fair crowd out but bidding was not very lively. The residence property was purchased for $840 by Holger Pedersen. This is considered a bargain for Mr. Pedersen as the house is in very good condition and is worth more money.
