Naples, March 31. The mountain
villages of Borello and Belpassa
have been left to their fate, accord
ing to advices from Catania today.
Tho flow of lava from 35 craters
of the giant mountain of Aetna has
widened In its progress down tho
southern slope of the volcano. Sol
diers have abandoned tho towns per
mitting the inhabitants to re-enter
them to remove everything of value
that could be carried to safety.
Other towns on the mountain
side, which have partially been
burned by tho solidifying lava, have
been depopulated for several days
and the soldiers axe preventing the
peasants from re-entering them be
cause of danger.
Intervening hills havo checked the
flow of lava toward Catania, accord
ing to reports and the lava la now
flowing toward the coast.
The lava is estimated to bo 100
feet "deep in places.
