A MONSTROUS FLY.--While Mr. A. A. Oliver, of Long Point, was driving to the Falls on Tuesday, he noticed among the flies that were worrying his horse, one of such monstrous size that he killed it and brought it to the village, where he gave it to Mr. F.A. McDiarmid, who put it into a small cardboard box, and sent it, with a letter, to the Agricultural Department, Toronto. It measured two inches from tip to tip of its wings; and, if it is a genuine horsefly, it is to be hoped that it has left no descendants that will grow to the same size.
