GENERAL NEWS
-------
The following was rather a queer way to win a prize on July 4th at San Antonio, Texas:
One quarter million dead flies in one heap, being a pile three feet high and five feet wide, represents the slaughter wrought by small boys as a result of a fly-killing contest, which closed here last night. Robert Bass carried off the prize of $10 with an official record of 484,320 dead flies.
