Marion—Sorrow has come over our community by taking to the great beyond Sidney H. Russell, who was seriously injured last week when he was hurled from a load of baled straw on which he was riding. Before an x-ray was taken it was thought that he had not received more injuries than a fractured right hip and several bad bruises in the fall, but the x-ray pictures showed him more seriously injured than was first thought. The weakened condition of his heart and the other injuries he received gave little hope of his recovery.
Russell, who was 76 years old, was born at Woodhull, Ill., Feb. 77, 1885, moving to California. While there he met and was later married to Miss Elizabeth Brown, and a short time later moved to Oregon making their home at various points in southern Oregon and the Willamette valley, locating in the Marion vicinity about 45 years ago, where Russell was engaged in farming, piling contracting and for several years he also operated a threshing outfit in this district. He was a member of the Marion Friends church. He was road supervisor of the Marion road district for about 25 years.
Since the death of his wife about 14 years ago he has made his home with his son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Hal Russell of Marion. He is survived by six sons, Roy and Elmer Russell of Lowell, Hal Russell of Marion, Hugh and Chester Russell of Salem, and Ben Russell of Portland; one sister and brother Mrs. Lucy Welton of Spokane, Wn., and W. B. Russell of Marion, a number of grandchildren and hosts of friends. 
Funeral services were held at the Friends church Monday afternoon.
