Vast Areas in South America Jbra
Being Ravaged by Them.
Vast regions in South America ara
being devastated by locusts. This is
tlie tliird succc.ssive season in which
y have appeared in countless swarms
and every vestige of vegetation on
which cattle and sheep subsist is being
d-jstruyed. The countries chiefly affect
ed are Argentina , Bolivia , southern
Brazil , Paiyjguay and I'ruguay. Iu
these countries the swarms have been
steadily increasing for a number of
years. They are supposed to originate
in the southerly part of the Amazon
basin and in the Chaco of Bolivia and
of no'-thern Argentina. They had come
froir. the north in clouds that sometimes
darken the sun and some of the swarms
have been estimated to be ( JO miles
long and from V2 to 15 miles wide. But
these billions of flying insects are only
the forerunners of the greater mischief
They make desolate the area in
which they setlle. but often jump wide
areas in their flight. Before they take
to the wing they lay billions of eggs iu
the warm eaith which in a few weeks
become hoppers. It is this young , voracious
cious brood , before it can fly , that ut
terly strips the land of everything
green as though it had been burned
All the governments are fighting the
evil. Two years ago the Argentine gov
ernment organized a commission for
the destruction of the locust. Last
j-ear the Argentine Congress placed $ ! , -
500,000 at the disposal of this commis
sion. Sub-committees represent the
general commission in every depart
ment exposed to these invasions and
they extend from the northern limit of
agriculture in the republic to the Neu-
river , almost to Patagonia. Ev-
I erything possible is done to minimize
j the damage.
A fine of 300 pesos is imposed upon
any settler failing to report to the sub-
commillee in his district the presence
of locust swarms or hopper eggs on his
land. An organized service embracing
thousands of men is in readiness at any
moment to send a force to any place
where danger is reported. The most
effective war is waged against the
The ofiicial report is that as many aa N. &

in a space less than three and a half

the young insects are destroyed soon of
