FIc is still unconscious and the attending doctors are hopeful of pulling him through. .Many more turfmen and horses arrived today. Among those to get in were A. G. Blakeley, Dr. W. G. King-Dodds, Louis H. Adair and others. The information bureau established to assist the racing folk in securing suitable accommodations in private residences has over 300 apartments, furnished rooms and Imarding houses still on its list as available to applicants. The readiness of the townspeople to accommodate the horsemen and their families witli suitable living quarters is the best testimonial in regard to the changed sentiment and in favor of the racing. The summerlike weather prevailing is being taken advantage of by the visitors to go to the Isle of Palms, a nearby resort where ocean bathing and fishing are the attractions. It is not uncommon there during an afternoon to witness hundreds of racing men disporting themselves in the surf or hauling in big catches of sea bass.
