      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
