One way would be to use the added text option (help added text options):

sysuse auto,clear
keep in 1
scatter mpg gear, text(`=mpg' `=gear' "MPG, Gear Ratio", placement(2)) /// 
 || scatter price weight, text(`=price' `=weight' "Price, Weight",
placement(7)) /// 
 xscale(off)  yscale(off) legend(off)
