Storyline

A foreign count, representing his government, advertises for a new instrument of war. Prof. Mixum has just invented a flying torpedo and determines to win the award. He is robbed of his invention by two crooks, Pokes and Jabbs, who visit the count and try to get the money. But they cannot make the contrivance work. The professor comes on their trail and denounces them. They are chased off and he sets the flying torpedo after them. They climb a telegraph pole to escape, but the torpedo cuts the pole in two and they come down with a bump. Convinced that the torpedo is just what he wants, the count pays the award to the professor. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
