In Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer

IMMOBILIZED WITH HIS MOTORBIKE BY A MYSTERIOUS GLEAM

Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer (C.P.).
Sunday morning around 4 hours, Mr. Casimir André going to hunting on motorbike, had his attention drawn by a powerful gleam coming from the boulevard de la Plage [boulevard of the Beach].

Having to go through this boulevard, he was suddenly stopped at a certain distance and his vehicle did not advance any more. When the gleam went out, he was able to resume his travel, particularly impressed.

One hour later, Mr. Leon Baudouvin, city council man, passing at this place with his car, saw a circular machine emitting a purple gleam, rise in the airs, leaving behind itself a trail of flames.
