THE PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS IN RUSSIA. The inhabitants of various Russian provinces are aghast at the devastating ravages of the locusts. In- telligence received from Charkoff states that in that district the locusts are swarming over and utterly destroying the crops of a fertile tract of 50.000 acres. Also in the district of Novokopersch, in the govern* ment of Veroneschki, and in the neighbourhood of Taganrog the same frightful destruction of the crops is proceeding. The most energetic measures to stamp out the plague are being taken, and with this object the district government of Novokopersch have voted 25,000 roubles, and the governor in person has left for the scene of havoc, In Taganrog the grain and locusts have been burned together in order to stamp out the pest. From Borissoglebsk the latest intelligence is still more lamentable. The locusts in this government are ravaging a trac" of about 70,000 acres. Six thousand soldiers sent to the assistance of tha inhabitants are powerleaa to check the appalling destruction.
