      Philip G. Reuter Sec. & Treas. of the Reuter-Jones Mfg. Co., holds a high place in the commercial interests of St. Louis. He was born in Nashville, Illinois, January 21, 1876, and is of German ancestry, his father Theodore L. Reuter, having been born in Frankfort-on-theMain, April 6, 1845. His mother, Mary C. Huegeley, was a native of Nashville, Illinois, having been born there in 1848. The elder Mr. Reuter migrated to America when a young man and located in Nashville, Illinois, where he met the young woman who afterward became his wife. In 1865 he here entered the milling business in which he has since been engaged. When the war broke out in 1861 he enlisted in the volunteer service and served throughout the conflict. He has always taken a lively interest in the welfare of the town and is recognized as one of the most highly respected citizens. At present he is a member of the Nashville school board and also as an alderman. His brother, Henry F. Reuter also enlisted in the volunteer service and continued in the ranks until the close of the war. Both the maternal and paternal grandfathers of the subject are still living in Nashville, Ill. Philip G. Reuter is one of five children, the others being : M. Sue Reuter; Mrs. Annette Jones; Theo H., who married Corwin Blackmun; and John Bertram Reuter who is nineteen years of age and attending public school.
      Philip G. Reuter attended the public schools in his native town until the year 1895 when he took a nine months' course at the Bryant & Stratton Business College in St. Louis, After completing his studies he returned to Nashville and was employed with his father in the Huegeley Milling Company's plant as a clerk. in 1898 he entered the service of the government and accompanied the Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes in what was then called Indian Territory. Having completed his duties with the commission he became secretary and treasurer of the Canadian Trust Company at Muskogee, Oklahoma, in which responsible position he remained for two years. In April, 1905, he came to St. Louis and assisted in organizing the Reuter-Jones Manufacturing Company at Nos.1607 - 1617 South Third street. This company succeeded the Dehner-Wuerpel Building Company. The new company was incorporated with W. R. Jones, president; Theodore L. Reuter, vice-president; and Philip G. Reuter, secretary and treasurer. The firm employs in the neighborhood of one hundred men and keeps three traveling salesmen continually on the road. They engage in the manufacture of special machinery and make a complete line of mill supplies. They are also largely interested in the manufacture of power transmission and coffee and spice machinery. With perhaps one exception this firm conducts the largest manufactury in this line of goods in the country.
      On June 7, 1905, Mr. Reuter wedded Miss Margaret Crutsinger, at Chamois, Missouri. Her father, Volney M. Crutsinger, is deceased, but her mother, Julia A. Crutsinger still living and resides at Cahmois, Missouri. Mr. Reuter's grandfather, John Huegeley, is still living in Nashville, Illinois. He is now about the oldest miller in the state, having been in the milling business all his life.
