VETERAN TURFMAN IS SERIOUSLY .iLL NEW YORK, N, Y., November 2S. Chris Smith, who a generation ago was one of the noted characters of the turf, is in Bellevue Hospital suffering from a paralytic stroke. Mr. Smith once owned some of the best horses in this country, including the great mares Yo Tambien and Maid Marian. Secretary A. L. McEarlocker of the Saratoga Racing Association reported the greatest number of entries for next years stakes in the history of the track. The early list, which closed yesterday, outnumbers considerably those of last years at this time. That Mr. Sinclair and Mr. Hildretli have purchased Rancocas Farm in New Jersey, the breeding establishment or the late Pierre Lorillard and morn recently the property -of Mrs. L. A. Livingston, is gathered from the fact that Billy Myers left New-York to take charge there yesterday. Mr. Myers had been engaged by Hildretli to superintendent his breeding establishment onie months ago. Myers left here recently saying he was going to Rancocas Farm.
