It takes a good deal of nerve to live on a little island with an active volcano, but the villagers around the base of Stromboli do not appear concerned for their safety. They keep at work until the volcano shows signs of an outbreak, and then get into their boats and sail over to the mainland, where they are comparatively safe, and remain until the trouble is over. The best barometers to foretell eruptions are cats. Nature has somehow authorized cats to act as weather bureaus for volcanoes, for their instincts somehow teach them when a convulsion is approaching and all their owners have to do is to act on the warning.
