NOTES OF THE TURF. George Edwardes, English actor-manager, lias decided to sell his racing stud and retire from the turf. There is talk of the advisability of extending the Charleston meeting through the mouth of March in view of the increasing patronage that it is receiving. A. T. Criim. of St. Louis. Mo., intends campaigning a select stable of young horses this season iu Kentucky. His horses will be shipped to Louisville early in April. Jockey Loftus will make his final appearance in the saddle iu America on Iron Mask when that son of Disguise makes an attempt to lower Salvators mile record at Juarez next Sunday. He will visit New Orleans and Chicago before sailing for France. In a letter to a friend at Palm Reach. Fla.. Rich-ard Croker enclosed a copy of a Dublin paper reporting the largest offer over made for his famous sin-, Orhy, but mentioning no figure. The owner in tiie letter says the offer was greater than .-J200.000 and says no amount of money will buy the horse. It is noteworthy that there is not a horse on starter Miltons schooling list at Charleston. In the early part of the meeting lie bad several on the schooling list, but since they have been restored to good standing he has not been bothered with any others. Usually at a winter meeting, the longer the meeting goes on the heavier the schooling list becomes.
