We are pleased to hear that Mr. J. C. Gardiner having resigned his
appointment as R. M., it is suggested that after his long services of 31 years in County
Galway that some mark of the esteem in which he is held by every one should
be presented to him. The subscription is limited to £1. Mr. S. Waithman Of
Merlin Park, has kindly consented to act as Treasurer, and any subscriptions
sent to him will be acknowledged, and the names appear from time to time in local
papers. This is a most deserving and popular object and will, we are sure,
be widely supported by all creeds and classes.
Louis C. B. Brennan, the famous inventor of the Brennan Torpedo, in use in
the British Navy, was born in Castlebar in 1852. Having emigrated to Australia
in boyhood he was apprenticed to a Civil Engineer in Melbourne, and where the
future torpedo of England's powerful navy was first conceived in the fertile
brain of the inventor when he was but twenty-two years of age. Thirteen years
later, in 1897, the Government by the advice of the Admiralty bough Mr
Brennan's invention for ten thousand pounds. Mr. Brennan's latest triumph is an
adaptation of the gyroscope to the mono rail, a device which he demonstrated
before the Royal Society in 1907. Mr. Brennan lives near Woolwich and is married
to Miss Quinn of Castlebar.

Galway, by Lady Mary Nugent, daughter of the 9th Earl of Westmeath. Sir
Henry was educated at the Oratory School and Trinity College, Dublin, of which he
is a B.A. He succeeded his brother in 1880, and was High Sheriff for Galway
in 1883 and held a commission in the 4th Battalion Connaught Rangers 1881-5.
He is unmarried.

John Butler Burke, M. A., of Cambridge and Dublin, is a well known Physicist
and Biologist. He was born in 1871, son of John Burke, M.D., of Ower,
Headford, in this county, by Victoria, only daughter of Benjamin Burke, of Manila.

Since 1905 he has written and lectured on his experiments at the Cavendish
Laboratory, Cambridge, and his book, "The Origin of Life" (published in 1906)
which has attained a world-wide circulation, supplies new evidence to support
the theory as old as Aristotle that the living was at one time produce from the
non-living, a theory which, in Mr. Butler Burke's opinion, if established,
need offer to the straitest orthodoxy no apprehension.
The "Daily Sketch" is a new claimant to public favour and an admirable
claimant it is . It is only a half penny paper, but it is full of pictures and
