     KARL ADOLPH MULLER is one of the younger men who have been assiduously laboring for the development of the resources of Okanogan county.  He resides on a farm about three miles northwest of Tonasket, in Horse Springs coulee, where he has a good quarter section which is devoted to general farming.
     Our subject was born on April 13, 1871, in Zurich, Switzerland, the son of Karl and AmeIia Muller, natives of that little republic.  The father, who was a skillful cheese maker, brought his family into the United States, in 1874, settling in Lawrence, Ohio.  They were the parents of eleven children, all of whom are living in the United States.  Our subject gained his education from the public and high schools of Kansas, to which latter state they went in 1881.  In 1884 he began to clerk in one of the neighboring stores.  After this he was occupied in a creamery, then went to Kansas City and worked in a foundry.  Following this venture, we find him in New Mexico, whence he returned to Kansas, then journeyed to Missouri in 1876.  He went to the Fraser river country in British Columbia, and rode the range for a cattle company there.  He was foreman after that for nearly three years, then took the gold fever and started to Alaska.  This was in March, 1899.  He went to Skagway, and equipping himself with a boat on the Chilcoot river, prospected, but met with no success.  He returned to Douglas Island and went to work in the Treadwell mills, after which he came to Skagway and was occupied in a planing mill.  He soon decided that he had enough of the winter country, and came back to Seattle, whence he went to Skykomish and prospected.  From there he came to Wenatchee, whence in December of the same year, 1899, he journeyed to Loomis.  In the following March he took his his present homestead and has since given his attention to its development and cultivation.  He is now in partnership with his brother, Karl Rudolph Muller, who is named in another portion of this work.  Mr. Muller has also given some attention to mining since coming here, and has shown himself to be a man of industry and reliability.
