Another of the pioneers of Columbus
passed away last Friday with the
death of Thomas Keating, who had
lived here since 1879. He was born
in Harvard, Illinois, April 1, '18-11,
and lived there until he came to Neb
raska. While there he was enpaged
in the grocery business, and hail never
undertaken farming until he came
here and settled on what is now one of
the Sheldon farms northwest of the
city. For many years however, the
family has lived in the city. Novem
ber 8, fifty years ago, he was married
to Miss Ellen Sullivan, and it was the
intention of the family, had he lived
the remaining few weeks, until the
anniversary of that date, to have cel
ebrated the golden wedding annivers
ary. Twelve children, seven daugh
ters and five sons came to bless their
home, of whom six daughters and
three sons, together with their moth
er, survive him. The sons are Thorn
as Keating, of Fremont, John Keat
ing, of Denver, and Henry Keating,
of Laramie, Wyoming: the daughters
are Mrs. Margaret Flynn and Mrs. P.
J. Hart, and Miss Lillian Keating, of
Columbus; Mrs. W. F. Winkle-man
and Miss Gertrude Keating, of Denver
and Mrs. G.A. Young, of Omaha, all
of whom were here to attend the fu
neralwith the exception of Mrs.
Winkelmnn, who was detained by sick
ness in her own family. Other rela
tves from out of town who were here
were His brother, John Keating, of
Graceville.Minnesota; Mr. and Mrs.
William Sullivan, of Albion; William
Sullivan Jr.. of Denver, Mr. and Mrs.
M. O. Lawless, of Omaha. Many
beautiful tributes were in evidence,
two of which were especially gorgeous,
were sent from friends of John Keat
ing at Denver. The funeral was held
from the home Sunday afternoon, with
services at the Catholic cnurch and in
terment in the parish cemetery.

Black Inhabitants of France.
Lying so much off the beaten track,
the village of Port Lesne, in the Jura
department of France, is visited by
but few from the outside world, and
consequently this tiny community of
men and women of color is but little
known. It is not a large village, for
its Inhabitants number only about a
hundred, but every one is either black
or copper colored. It owes its origin
to the fact that about a century ago
the famous uegro chief. Toussaint
L'Ouverture. was brought from Haiti
and imprisoned in Fort de Jous.
Many of his friends, all negrm. fol
lowed, him and encamped near his
prison on the bank of the little river
Loue. From that encampment grew
the village of Port Lesne. and when
Toussalnt L'Ouverture died more than
100 years ago N his friends decided to
remain in France. The passing of
years and Intermarriages have trans
formed the settlement into a French
Tillage of colored folk, all of whom
