The funeral services of Mrs. M. G. Harbord on Sunday, August 23d, were attended by a very large concourse of people, and followed to the cemetery by nearly one-half mile line of carriages. Mrs. Harbord died at Sodaville, Oregon, August 20th, to which place she had lately gone for the purpose of benefiting her health, which has been impaired for several years, and constantly growing worse. Although she had the best of care by her family and friends, the fell destroyer came and she passed away as calm as going to sleep. When she was told the end was near she only smiled, and received it as a welcome message, signifying her willingness to go. She then in turn talked about all the family, and giving advice as to her burial. Almost her last request was that the firebell be tolled and the firemen attend her funeral, (she being one of the prime movers in organizing the Firemen's coffee club) for, said she, "I love the firemen." Among the last was: "Thank everyone that has helped us, for being so kind; tell everybody good-bye for me." 
She was the daughter of Hon. George Price, of Bloomington, Illinois. Her father, mother, four sisters, and five brothers still reside there, and one sister in Salem, Mrs. John McPain. She was born in Bloomington, Feb. 20th, 1844, and was married to M. G. Harbord in 1862. They moved from there in 1873, to Oregon, settling in Yamhill county, where they remained for two years, since which time they have lived in Salem. Mrs. Harbord was a woman genial and hospitable to her neighbors and friends, and charitable to all, however humble or lowly. In her domestic sphere she was a devoted wife, an indulgent and most affectionate mother. The grief stricken family desire to express their gratitude to their many friend that have been so kind to them during her sickness, and their feeling attention at the last sad rites. Especially do the desire to thank Mr. and Mrs. Deardorff, Mr. and Mrs. Parrish, Mr. and Mrs. Davis, Mr. and Mrs. Talbott, at Sodaville; who showed them many acts of kindness, and did all they could to lighten their burdens. Also for the courtesies extended to them by the Masons, at Lebanon, which will long be remembered. Conductor Young is also extended their heartfelt thanks.
