If that's what is wanted, note that -separate- was written partly to
support this kind of thing directly. 

sysuse nlsw88.dta,clear
separate wage, by(south) 

etc. 

The advantage is greater with several groups, rather than two.

I don't think May is trying to get a break in the axis, but rather in  
the plotted line. Something like this, maybe?

. sysuse nlsw88.dta,clear
(NLSW, 1988 extract)

. g wagenorth = wage if !south
(942 missing values generated)

. g wagesouth = wage if south
(1304 missing values generated)

. collapse wagenorth wagesouth,by(age)

. twoway line wagenorth age if age<=40  || line wagesouth age if age>=40
