Even by day it shows Itself to mariners by its plume of smoke. At night it not only glows con- tinually, but sends out :it intervals more vivid flashes of light after the fashion of a inau-nnuiu lighthouse. Stromboli's flashes, however, are not regular; and it is this Irregularity that gives it its marked individuality. "In the crater is a continually boil- ing reservoir of lava.
