[Ref. qh1:] JOURNAL "LE QUOTIDIEN DE LA HAUTE LOIRE":

A FLYING CIGAR REPORTEDLY HAS BEEN SEEN SATURDAY IN THE SKY OF THE PUY

Saturday, between 05:00 P.M. and 05:30 P.M., while he was at one of the windows of the apartment which he lives in, on the second floor of a building at 1a rue des Tables, in Puy, Mr. Breysse, sales agent, was in position to observe (as did several of his neighbors) the passage of a mysterious machine, in the horizon located for him between Vouzac and La Denise. This machine, which appeared very distant, moved slowly. Affecting the shape of a cigar cut into two, it advanced with its pointed end at the back. A smoke escaped during a short moment from this apparatus which was shining in the setting sun and appeared slightly gilded. No noise has been perceived by Mr. Breysse, but he, which besides specifies that it could not have been an illusion, adds that being given the apparent distance, no noise could have reached him. Finally! Puy has its cigar and many will envy Mr. Breysse for having seen it.
