WAS UNTIL LATELY A GARDEN SPOT Nothing Much Left Since De parture of 750,000 Russians Who Resided There Year. LiONTXXN, June 30. (By Associated Press correspondent from Jassy)- Ru mania Is a desolate and barren coun try today an awful object lesson of the cost of war. - Two years ago it was one of the garden countries of the world, teeming ;l with agricultural wealth and prosperity. More than 750,000 Russian soldiers lived in It and on it for nearly a year, and they left very little behind them. " Anyone who has known Rumania as she was when peace was forced up on her by the Central , Powers, must be convinced that. , it will . be years before Germany can draw from, her fields and orchards any very valuable tribute. Nor is the German control of Ru mania's petroleum production likely to be a very profitable investment . for some time. In the--so-called "occupied territories.w the destruction of the . oil fields was so complete wtat Germany after fifteen months of effort, laable to measure her supplies from . this source in quarts. In the rest of Rumania, It, Is doubt ful If production can be much in creased beyond that of the past .year, and during the past year petroleum has been one of the scarcest arti cles in the country, obtainable only under personal and special license from the government. - During the middle the winter, the Associated Press correspondent made a tour of Inspection around per haps a. score of the r frontier towns where the largest i proportion of re fuse population had been dumped In the hurried retreat before the German hosts. Conditions were serious beyond description, but the major part of the suffering was due to famine rather than exposure. The shortage of food was such that in many instances refugees were seen in the fields eating or attempting to eat grass. . Terrible as . was the plight of the people of these refugee districts in war time: they can hope for little al leviation with the coming of a forced peace. Practically no harvests can be expected this year in these dis tricts, for no seed will be available, and moreover there are no agricul tural implements left, no any horses or draft animals of any, kind. Thou sands of Rumanian horses, died of starvation during the winter, for the peasant were too exhausted in caring for. their own needs to make any at tempt to provide ; for their beasts. Tn France the' horses would have been put to good use as meat for hu man food, but the Rumanian peasant has an abhorrence of horse flesh as meat.
