LAID AT REST.
All That Was Mortal of Thomas Keating Consigned to Mother Earth.
The funeral of the late Thomas Keating took place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence of F.M. Lee, and was largely attended. Rev. F. Vernon Jones conducted the cememonies and spoke in kindly tones of the many virtues of the deceased.
The floral pieces were numerous and beautiful, especially a huge horseshoe standing about four feet high, which was sent by the Charter Oak Park Association of Hartford, Conn., of which Mr. Keating was an esteemed member.
Many friends and acquanintances from San Francisco and other California towns arrived on the morning train to pay their last respects to the memory of "Tommy" Keating, the Reno boy so well and favorably known throughout the United States.
Thomas Keating was perhaps best known in Reno, where he spent his boyhood days. He was the soul of honor, his word being as good as anyone's bonds, consequently his friends were legion-his enemies unknown. Peace to his long sleep.
Aged 38 years
