A PROMINENT EDUCATOR.
E. D. Reeeler, preeident of thf Oregon State Normal School at Monmouth, is one of
the best 'known educator on the contt. He is a native of Ohio, and has lived 37 years.
Hit early education was attained in the public and grammar schools of Ohio, later taking
hi degree at Olierlin college. After taking a thorough Normal course he taught school in
the East, later accepting the principaUhip of the Eugene high school, bringing that institu
tion from a dieorganUed condition up to a splendid system. Previous to his election to the
presidency of the Normal he hlj the chair of pedagc-SV in the State University. During
one year at the hed of the Normal he has accomplished his greatest achievements. The at
tendance of the school I.hn Lei-it materially increatn-d, and he has infused into the members
a fpiril which prniie ioimih- that tntitotion to Uk great strides during the next few
years. Hacently Pwiil. l.'i-xeler had the handnoine compliment puid him of being elect-
d preatdent of tho WVft-ro Mivimon of th Stale teacher Ae'ciauon.

A Feature For the Future.
Commencing next week, or at

donate a column of the Enterprise
to original recipes furnished us ex
clusively by that past master of
the cooking art, J. Geo. Stoll. You
all know be is an artist, but to
those who are not acquainted with
nis record we will say that M.
Stoll is equal to the best in the
land. He has been a chef in the
Auditorium hotel of Chicago, the
leading hostelry in the West. The
Rio Grande dining car and hotel
service was under his charge. The
Knutsford, of Salt Lake, grew
under his charge to haye one of the
k...i tnhlpn in th West, while
numerous other establishments of
equal renown have utilized his ser
vices. One further fact: Mr. Stoll
Warned his trade under bis father,
who is royal chef of Switzerland.
In securing Mr, Stoll's services we
are certainly to be congratulated,
and our readers should avail them
selyes of the opportunity of pre
serving the articles.

gives, every promise ot being a
most useful member of the faculty.

Buena Vista Special
The United Evangelical church
in Buena Vista was the scene of an
interesting event Friday evening.
Early after the close of the busy
day people of all ages began flock
ing to the church to be present at
the musical recital given by Rev.
Kelly's class advertised to take
place at 8:00 o'clock. An under
current of subdued excitement was
noticeable im the crowd, for nearly
everyone present was interested in
a greater or lesser degree in some
pupil who was to perform; while
yisions of a generous collection, to
be awarded as a prize, kept the
performers in a state of pleasurable
anticipation. While all did well,
we think special mention should be
given the numbers rendered ky
Misses Maggie and Carrie Evans,
of Parker; Amy and Winnie Kelly,
of Independence; j Edna Hall and
Hermann and Mildred Prather, of
, The judges were instructed to
give credits on position ' of student
at the instrument, expression, ren
dition and personality. , Miss Win
nie Kelly received the prize, which
was a collection amounting to$ 2.27.
The decision of the judges was well
received by the audience. Miss Kel

much taste and expression.
Nearly all present at the recital
attended the ice cream social at the
school house and the occasion was
enjoyable. The proceeds realized
