BIG METEOR FALLS AND SHAKES CITIES Norfolk, Va. —The meteor which ; flashed across the skies here last Fri-; day night and rocked the hemes In half a dozen oities by the shock cf its' landing, was found 12 miles north of, Blackstone, in Nottawa county. Striking in a grove of oak trees, the meteor made a depression in th earth which measuied more than 500 square feet in area. Several trees were buried beneath the falling body: in this hole. The meteor apparently | was composed of some metallic su stance. Residents in the vicinity said there was a terrific detonation when the ob ject, which apparently weighed as much as 20 tons, hit the earth, and a sheet of flame was sent up which was plainly visible for miles. Scientists from Richmond will vsit the scene to make an analysis of the material of which the meteor was made. PLAGUE OF GRASSHOPPERS TO TAKE WYCk, IS WARNING The grasshoppers are going to swarm down and take Northern Wyo ming if efforts are not made to head them off, warns Stewart Lockwood, who represents the department of agriculture. "I have gone over the situation carefully, and believe that the public should be fully warned of the ap proaching plague,” Mr. Lockwood said in Sheridan last week. "Ninety per cent of the grasshopper eggs which were laid last summer are now de veloping and will be hatched within two or three weeks. There are an enormous number of grasshopper eggs in this locality. The earliest possi ble action must be taken in the way •of spreading grasshopper poisoning. The earlier the poison is spread, the more effective it will be. This point cannot be overemphasized. The time to act is now, and the action must be from a united movement.” The "red” census in Europe is es timated at 2,800.000.
