Census Shows Great Progress in
1. S. in Spite of Im
NO CHANGE IN THIS STATE
Present Generation Will Put l's
Abreast of Most Enlight
Washington, Nov, I. Illiteracy in the
United States has decreased during the
last decade from 10.7 to 7,5 per cent., it is
shown by statistics jttst Riven out by the
Census Bureau, That the decrease has
not been even, more marked Is due to
the heavy immigration in thg last ten
yeara. This slgnillcant statement was
made yesterday at the Census Bureau
"Theso figures show that illiteracy in
the United States is being gradually elim
inated nnd that when the present genera
tion of children grows up to manhood and
womanhood illiteracy in the United
States, especially amon the white popu
lation, will l go greater than in the
most advanced countries of Europe."
This statement is borne out by the fact
that among children from 10 to H years
OKI mo ecreao in inueracy miring
ten years was from
per cent. ,
An illiterate in the eyes of tho Census
Bureau is a person of 10 years or over
who cannot write, regardless of his or her
nlitlitv to read 'I he numb:r of illiterates
in the United States in 1U10, "when the
last census was taken, was 3.5H.60S. as
compared to O.IW.two in ltoo u dwreato
of about ooo.ooo.
A glance at the statistics for lew and
of tne unitea iatH so tar ns tsiiicaiiou
s concermsl has been steady. In 1MI
dio uumlier of Illiterates was ii,:iJJ,70'.', and
in 6.23D.05K. 'I his s)ios all apparent
increase between 1KWI and 1S90, but a
matter of fact the iK-rcetitage of illiterates
to the entire lobulation fell o!f from 17
in 18S1) to i:.3 in 1SU0.
The number of white illiterates at the
last census was H,lst,i7o, as compared to
3,200,748 ten years belore In the native
white population there were only 1,5:14,213
illiterates in lttiO, as compared witti l.tici,
HI 1 in 1WW. '1 he others were iiiiinU'.rauts.
'lhe iwrcentage of Illiterates among li;
groe is al-o declining In ltlio there were
2,227.001; ill IU4NI. 2,H53,1I); ill 1HUO, :i,ot2,t'HS.
'lhe tigiiins snow the eri'ei.taf.e ol
illiteracy higher in rural districts than
ill cities. In rural dmtiul.s in ltlio it
wus lu.2, in cities ,nly 5.1. It is higher
among women and girls Hun among men
uud boys, the llguivs Iwing 7.N er cent,
for females und 7.0 per c-ent. for males.
In New York Htute tho ieivutuK of
Illiterates ivmuined iiuchuiiced ut 5 5.
lhe total population in .hw lurk In 1910
&10.M1U mid the uuiill:er of Illiterates
was 400,220. Ill KXW the actual popula
tion was &.M01, on.' aim tne uumier or illit
erates whs 318,100.
Coraiatwl with most countries of Kufope
audi South America tho Tinted Suites lias
a record of which it may well Iw proud.
In Ausrtla the issrcentage of ilhtemcy
was 2S.2 in 1900, tho latest figures avail
able: in Kuropean ltussia, 70 (er cent
cf the population 10 years old or over
was illiterate in 1M)7; in Greece tho or
centage was 57.2; in Spain in 1000, 58,7;
in Italy In 1000, (8.2; in Canada tho per
centage among tho (ivoplo 5 yours old
or over was 17.1 In 1601; In Mexico the
percentage among erons 11 years old
and over wns 75 3.
But the United States has not equalled
tho records of some of tho tnoro enlight
ened European countries in wiping out
illiteracy. Among Scanflaiiavians it has
becomo so rare that it is negligible, and
the statistics no longer take account of
it. In Germany the army tecrults
showed 3-10 of l por cent, iiliturntu In
1005; in Great Britain the icrtentagu of
illiteracy among army recruits in 1003
1004 was 1. In Franco tho illiterates
among tho population lo years of age nnd
over In 10CB was 14.1.

He Combines Breadth of Stylo
The new Aeolian Hall, Thlch must here

We shall have to hear the voice, chamber

sure of the arotistics. Hut It was evident
yesterday that there was no unpleasant
reverberation anil it seems likely that
sounds will be distinct in the Aeolian.
The relentless thunipinc of an entdne some
where In the buildlm: did much to mar (he
pleasure of the hearers at the concert, It Is
to be hoped that this evil can he removed,
Mr, (ialston Is n youne pianist and his fame
has not swclhsfMhe prints on this side of the
Atlantic, He has demonstrated his serious
attitude toward his art by writing a .Stu
dlenbnch," which shows lilm to be a very
thouahtrul student nf piano music. His
recital yesterday afiornon.i disclosed stnr
Unir nullities and he will without doubt
itrow In the favor of the puollo.
Mr. (Ialston is not what the averace
concertirocr would reeard as a lr:uoo.
Ho has none of the supeiflcial charm,
none of the exciting brilliancy, none of the
flinser magic associated with performers of
the purely virtuoso type. Onthe other hand,
it would be a grave Injustice to him to say
that ho is a pedagogic pianist, an illustrat
ing lecturer or demonstrator of the method
of Interpretation. He Is, Indeed, of the
Interpretative school, and his playing de
pends for Its Interest largely upon the plan
of exposition. Mr. (lalston's equipment
for his chosen task Is a sound technique
and a style which combines Immense vltor
with flashes of fine but continent poetic
communication. In big forte passages
Mr. lul-t on produced yesterday a splendid
uuality of lone and displayed imposing
breadth ot style. In the more Introspective
variety of tantabile, such as that of the
"Haniincrklavler" sonata, he showed ex
uulsite refinement in tint and phrasing
and a sentiment which possessed an aspect
of d lenity.
His programme was not altogether con
ventional. It began with the llach organ
diorals In l. Hat major and O major, ar
ranged by liusonl. Following the&e came
the Sicilicnnc" of the same master, ar
ranged by lhe pianist himself, and then
Ilu-onl s ponderous and even confining
arrangement of the prelude and fugue
in I) major. In this list number Mr. fial-
Htun almosl triumphed over the tumultuous
ecstasy of Mr liusonl in sowing Ida pages
with chords and other tonal complications
It was a really large blcd piece of piano
playing und was worth hearing,
lhe formidable soutta. opus KM, of
Heel bo veil followed the Bach numbers.
and of this reflective and challenging
creation the pianist gave a reading which
should commend him to the serious atten
tion of real lovers of music, lie whs per
haps happiest in the largo, which he played
with wonderfully lieamlful tone and with a
convincing distribution of accent, light
and shade. It bounded lleethovenlun In
that it had pathos without tearfulness and

SKELETON OF A DIATRYMA

which is just eatft of tlio Yellowstone
"One of my most remarkable 'finds,""
said tho fossil explorer yesterday, "wun
the discovery of parts of a skeleton of a
gigantic bird, probably a flight lesn bird,
which I unearthed in the hard shale of
the Wnsatch formation. These fragments
were entomlied there in this formation,
which we scientists reckon is about .1,000,
ooo years old.
"The parts of the skeleton which I found
probably represent oue of the largest
specimens of tho diatryma ever dis
covered in North America. This bird
has been described beforo, but no such
largo siecimen, ns near as wo can de
termine, has been known to oxist in this
country. In size it may bo compared
to the moas of New Zealand, of which
the museum has oue mounted specimen
In addition to his discovery of the
diatryma skeleton, Mr. Granger secured
many specimens of the Eoceno period
in tho Western formation, which, added
to tho collections already obtained through
previous expeditions, will make the
museum's possessions in this field the
largest In tho world.
'I no purchase of the famous Copo
collection, which is specially rich in the
Eocene fossils, h.ts also enlarged the
scope of tho museum in this particular
"We have been attempting to make
a 'roundup' of what these formations
contain," continued Mr. Granger, "nnd
among other specimens I secured was n
group of primates of the monkey family.
"Some of the groups of the animals
which have since become extinct in

animal belonging to the order of the

the horse. Its primitive condition repre
sents that which the horse occupied in

specimens are contemporaneous with

A Presentation of Exclislve Paris Eveiiig Gowas, Costumes,
will take place in the Bloomingdale Salons to-morrow, Monday.

sentative of A. H. Jugla, one of the most fashionable dressmakers
in Paris, at great price concessions.
Some of the garments are semi-made so that they may be
finished to your figure.
Vou will find it decidedly advantageous to attend.
One element in the high cost of living in M anhattan has been
reduced by the restoration of street car transfers on 59th Street
and connecting lines. It is now possible to travel between two
points on Manhattan for 5c. fare, so that all cars transfer to
Bloomingdales'. ' .
Transfers are now issued to 59th St. and Blccmingdales
by the following lines:
The Bloomingdale Store participated in the campaign against
the injustice involved in the abolition of transfers frcm the first
skirmish to the last battle. It congratulates the public on the
final victory and extends thanks to t;he Public Service Commis
sion, Legislature, particularly the local representatives, for their
earnest and successful work and cooperation in this Store's fight
