Ot. the whole number of illiterate*. 81 per cent are foreign born, but the strange fact is that tbe percentage of illiterates born in this elate of foreign born parent* (5.7 per cent) is much lower that tbe percentage (9.3 per cent) of illiterate children of native born parents. Practically all tbe illiterate chlldrtn of native parents are located ' in the rural districts, tha percent age_varying from one per cent in ^New^Yprk county to seven£y-six in Schoharie' county. ' People who assume -that tbe cities have the largest percentage of illiteracy are mistaken. ROAD AMENDMENT TOTE. The constitutional amendment in favor of $50,000,000 tor good roads was carried bra majority of 266,883. There were 383,188 votes for it and only 117.181 against. It carried every county except three. Orleans Which it lost by.331, Schuyler by 352 and Yates by 293. Greater New York which will bare much of the cost to pay while tbe highway Improvement \will be all in country districts gave « majority of 159,693 for the amendment, Columbia county cast 1,530 voces for and 1,422 against, a majority of 108. Bens- seise rcast 7,400 for and 2.576 against, . a majority or 4,825. Tbe counties with large citiea\seemed to be most largely in favor of the inprovement, 'though the figures show tbat it i%aa mora or leas popular every­ where. Two-thirds of tbe voters did- not vote one way. o r the other on the amendment, but that is usually tha case witb a neb things, especially when there is no active campaign as there was over tbe barge canal amendment.
