Nowhere in this country has the do
velopment of the diatrict school, that
rital index to the march of civilization,
been eo rapid aa in the territory of
Oklahoma. Uaually the proce'ss is a
slow one. The log cabin school haa been
in the habit of coming on the sccne
long after tho settlement was well nn
der way. It remained for yeurs beforo
it was replaced by tho framo bnilding,
and thia sufflced for gencrations.
But in Oklahoma the evoiution was
comparntively aa awift as the rush of
tho booiners acrosa tho prairie after the
stnrting gun had been fired. Tho school
mnatcr raced iri the van. Tho first pub
lic bnilding to bo erected in Oklahoma
was n Bclitiolhouse. True, it was merely
a 8od but, snch as ia frequontly built
on tho prairiea. but it serve'd tho pnr
poso for the time..
In the rush ncross the boundary Uno
behind tho schooltencher came his
echolara. In pioceer days tho Echqlars
were not so prompt in arriviug. Bnt in
Oklahoma civilization grcw aa a plnnt
nnder the wnnd of a magichtn.
Tho second schoolhonso in tho terri
tory was a moro pretcntious affaitv. 'Jt
waa a log cabin. Today Oklahoma has
many fine buildinga devoted to educa
ticnal purposes, althongh only a few
yeara have elapsed since its countiea
were desolato atretchea of prairie. In n
recent report to the secretary of tho iri
terior the governor of Oklahoma' says:
"When we think of the nenrly 100,
