Oath, Term., Sept. 29, 1890. The
institute held at Highland last Satur
day was indeed a grand success. The
teachers present showed by the in
terest they manifested in the work
that they- are enthusiastic in their
profession. The teachers in North
Warren are more interested in the
institute work than any part of the
county. I have attended every in
stiuite Held in tne county this year
but have not attended one in which
both teachers and patrons were so in
terested as they were at our last meet
ing. Our school building was crowd
ed to the utmost capacity and the ta
bles were burdened with the rich fes
tivities of life that part of life which
every teacher enjoys. Owing to the
inclemency of the weather some of
our able teachers were not present.
The recitations and methods of pre
senting the topics were pronounced
good. The lectures delivered by
Profs. Trail, Clark and Turner were
good and to the point. The next in
stitute will be held at McMinnville
in the City High School building, on
the 11th of Oct., beginning promptly
at 10 a. m.

The Sreat Change! Their TJm Would Effect
In Naval Warfare.
The cruiser Vesuvius now only lacks
the testing of the horse power of, her en
gines to be accepted and placed in com
mission, the recent trial of her three dy
namite guns having proved wholly sat
isfactory. Indeed, if any thing wore
wanting to show the terribly destructive
power of high explosives In warfare, tho
rosnlt of the explosion of 500-pound
shells Curing tho trial would have sup
plied It. Tho sholl fired from the Vesu
vius' battery each passed tho mile lino
and struck close to the buoy mark, and
by a mechanical timo fuse wero allowed
to sink undor tho water before exploding.
A few seconds aftor tho sea for a hun
dred yards around was blown bodily into
the air, while one shell, which exploded
on the surface, seemed to open the sea
to its very bottom. Such an explosion
would mean the utter annihilation of a
ship In tho vicinity of which it occurred,
and a few such shots directed against a
fleet at close range would reduce it to
silence in less time than the Roman
fleet in 1853 silenced the Turkish squad
ron by the use of Palxhan shells. Tho
only drawback to the utility of tbe
guns, in fact, is the shortness of their
rango, which will provent their use, un
supported, against an antagonist armed
with high-powered guns throwing a pro
jectile four or flvo hundred miles.
The invention of the timo fuse used in
tho recent trial, however, with the re
ported tests in England of an applica
tion by which dynamite shells can bo
discharged with gun-powder from com
mon artillery, renders it improbablo
that the difficulty in firing tho explo
sive, save from pneumatic guns, will not
be overcome. Even if it is not for har
bor and coast defenso pneumatic guns
will provo of immense valuo, and prom
ise to revolutionize the mothods of mod
ern warfare as radically as did the in
troduction of Paixhan shells in 1848, or
that of ironclads a few years later. When
attack is mado by a fleot upon coast de
fense, the latter nearly always have a
decided advantage in that their location
in harbors or the entrances of rivers
necessitates the close approach of the
fleet to shore. In that event, dynamite
could bo used; and while, generally
speaking, a vessel though struck by land
batteries can keep afloat, as demon
strated in the bombardmont of Alex
andria, a Bhip struck by a dynamite
shell would be blown out of water.
Land defenses located in a harbor where
they could not be successfully shelled
from tho soa, would then, be impregna
ble, while those constructed on the
banks of the rivers, whero the attacking
squadron must come within close range
would bar the progross of any floet.
What changes the use of dynamite
would effect in naval warfaro, Bhould its
discharge from ordinary cannon prove
feasible, it would bo difficult to deter
mine, though a heavy armor would bo
rendered useless, fleets might be com
posed only of small unarmorcd cruisers,
armed with dynamite guns. Numbers
would then bo the primo factor in naval
warfaro, as bulk is now, though as in
many naval operations a large force of
men i3 needed, it is not easy to predict
what the now conditions would bo. Thnt
the uso of dynamito on land would put
an end to war by making tho slaughter
intolerable, may bo questioned, no im
provement in the machinery of war hav
ing had tho effect to stop hostility be
tween pooples; but it would probably do
away with tho uso of fortifications. Tho
Franco-Prussian and tho Russo-Turklsh
wars so demonstrated tho valuo of in
trenehments that Germany and Franco
have constructed them on a largo scale
with a view to futuro possibilities, but
they havo hardly boon completed beforo
molinito and kindred explosives have
rendered them ineffective. And fore
casts of tho results of tho uso of dyna
mito in warfare, however, are liablo to
correction, but it may bo set down at
once that it will not prevent war, and
that tho era of universal peace will not
come through tho discovory of now in
struments of death. Chicago Journal.-
