    DEATH OF MR. THOMAS RANKIN.
    AN OLD PUBLIC ,SERVANT.
    An old public servantand one of Wagga's best known citizens, Mr. Thomas Bankin, of Collins-street, pasted peacefully away at 8.30 yesterday morning. The immediate cause of death was failure of tbe heart's action, due to empyema. Mr. Rankin, who was 67 years of age, has been seriously ill for three weeks past. At the end of last week his medical attendant (Dr. T. Watkins Burgess) advised an operation as the only possible chance of recovery. Mr. Rankin consented, and on
    Sunday morning Dr. Burgess, who was assisted by Dr. Thane, operated most successfully. The patient rallied splendidly, and for a time hopes were entertained that he would he himself again in a short time.
    These hopes, however, proved futile, for despite medical skill and careful nursing attention Mr. Rankin grew gradually weaker, and yesterday morning, after saying to his
    eldest son, 'I am going this time Jack,' passed quietly over the border, which bides the known from the great unknown. To the end be was conscious. He did not fear his
    last and greatest enemy, and was quite able to recognise the members of his family who stood overwhelmed with grief round his bedside.
    Mr. Rankin was probably one of the best known figures in Wagga. He had led a stirring and active life in the public service, and could recount, with interesting emphasis, stories of famous colonial criminals which cannot be equalled in these days. For many years Mr. Rankin was Governor of the Wagga Gaol, a position be vacated three
    years ago, owing to failing health.
    Mi.Rankin was a native of the county of Donegal, in Ireland. He commenced his active public life in 1864 by taking service with the Irish Revenue Police, with the service amalgamated with the Constabulary.
    Mr. Rankin decided to take the 3 and a half years compensation due to him and retire from the service. Then he secured an appointment as stationmaster at Victoria
    Bridge, in County Tyrone, under the North Western Railway Co. In 1858 he resigned and came out to Victoria. He remained in Melbourne until 1860, when, in response to
    an urgent request he went over to Tasmania
    and joined the Tasmania Police.In 1861 he was tired of the sleepy little island, resigned, and came over and settled in New South Wales. He had barely arrived when he was and accepted, an appointment in the Police Department at Wagga, but Afterwards joined the Prison Branch at Albury on the 1st November, 1863, just 35 years ago. He was subsequently transferred to the Wagga gaol, and again in 1806 was
    temporarily entrusted with the charge of the gaol at Albury. Three months later he was back at his post at Wagga. A few more months of active efficient service here led to the authorities promoting Mr. Rankin to the position of gaoler at Deniliquin, a post he retained with credit to himself and every satisfaction to the authorities until 1875, when he was again promoted and transferred to Cooma. A year later the gaol at Cooma was turned into a temporary asylum, and Mr. Rankin found himself back at Wagga as Governor of
    the Goel. The authorities being in want of a really good man at Mudgee, offered Mr. Rankin the post of Governor of the Gaol in that town in 1879 and he accepted. But his
    health failed him somewhat there and he requested the department to allow him to return to Wagga. They did this and in 1891 he was back as Governor of tbe Wagga gaol.
    But his health, which bad broken down with the strain of his official life, never properly recovered, and in 1895 Mr. Rinkin obtained six months leave of absence on full pay with
    the right of retirement at the end of that time if he wished it. Mr. Rankin decided to retire on his pension when his holiday was over, for his search for health had proved
    unavailing. Therefore on a well merited pension he stepped quietly aside and left the rough and tumble of official life for the quiet retirement of a private home.
    Since his retirement Mr. Rankin has never been in buoyant health, although he was ever regular and active in his habits. Barely a week before his final illness he walked to
    Uranquinty and back one Sunday morning, a remarkable feat for a man verging on the allotted span. He could tell rare and entrancing stories oi tbe wild captives who passed under his rule. He had Kelly and Wright, two noted horse thieves,at the time when the Kelly gang threatened to stick up the gaol and release them. "Let them come," said Mr. Rankin, " We are ready for them." Of course they never did come, but this shows one incident of the the calm and intrepid nature which was ever one of Mr. Rankin's distinguishing characteristics. He also proved a most careful and economic Governor of the Gaols over which he presided. He had heaps of friends and was always welcomed
    for bis conversational powers. This was widely evidenced yesterday by the number of wires and other messages that reached the bereaved family.
    Mr. Bankin leaves a widow and nine children. Mr. Jack Rankin, his eldest son, is one of the senior operators in the Wagga Telegraph Office. The eldest daughter of
    the deceased is the wife of Mr. Meiklejohn, Assistant Outdoor Traffic Superintendent, Southern district, Redfern, and she unfortunately arrived just too late to see her
    father alive.
    The funeral of the deceased will take place this afternoon at 3 o'clock.

    Birth:
    TERMONAMUNGAN, a parish, in the barony of OMAGH, county of TYRONE, and province of ULSTER, 11 miles (S. W.) from Strabane, on the road from Pettigoe to Newtownstewart; containing 7253 inhabitants. This parish, which is situated on the river Derg, and bounded on the south by the Longfield mountains, comprises, according to the Ordnance survey, 45,399 statute acres, of which 288 are water, and 28,435 are applotted under the tithe act. The surface is mountainous and interspersed with several small lakes; not more than one-fourth of the land is in cultivation, but the mountains afford good pasturage for cattle. limestone, freestone, whinstone and grauwacke are found in the valleys, and in some parts are indications of coal. The scenery is beautifully diversified; but the whole parish is deeply secluded. Fairs are held in the small village of Killeter, on the 21st of May, July, September, and November.

    The church is a neat small edifice with a bell turret; it was built in 1822 on a site near the village, and on the south bank of the river Derg. The R. C. parish is co-extensive with that of the Established Church; the chapel is at Aughryarn, and there is also an altar in the open air. There is a place of worship for Presbyterians in connection with the Synod of Ulster.
