KARL RUDOLPH MULLER. Among
the more recent settlers of Okanogan county, we have the pleasure of mentioning
the subject of this article, who is one of the progressive and substantial
citizens. He is dwelling about three miles northwest from Tonasket
postoffice, where he owns a quarter section of land, and is giving his
attention to farming and stock raising.
He was born July 20, 1877, in Erie county,
Ohio, the son of Karl and Amelia Muller, natives of Switzerland.
He was well educated in the public schools in Ohio and Kansas, and remained
with his father until twenty-one. His minority was spent on a farm
where he met with the invigorating exercise incident to rural life.
Soon after he became of age he worked out for some time and procured a
team and wagon for himself, after which he followed farming a short time
in Morris county, Kansas. Then he made a journey to the Alberta country,
Canada, and returned to Kansas. He sold his property in February,
1901, and came to join his brother in Okanogan county. He at once
selected his present homestead and since that time the two brothers have
been laboring together in partnership, in general farming and stock raising.
The parents are still living in Kansas. These young men have made
for themselves a good reputation in this western country, and judging from
the past, we presage for them a bright and prosperous future.
