You can add
 
style="overflow:scroll"
or
style="overflow:hidden"
to your label
or add CssClass to your ItemTemplae
and set this style

Hi,
you can set class or style for your label.
Es:
<asp:label text="..." runat="server"
    style="width:200px; height:200px; white-space: nowrap(or normal); 
    overflow: hidden(or scroll)"
</asp:label>
 
otherwise
 
you can break you text in rowdatabound event:
<asp:label text='<%# breakMyString(Eval("_COUNTRY"), 60) %>' />
protected string breakMyString(string inString, int len)
{
    string outString = inString;
    string suffix = " more...";
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(inString) && inString.Length > len)
        outString = string.Concat(inString.Substring(0, len - suffix.Length), suffix);
 
    return outString;
}
