Echoes from everywhere and elsewhere...

A farmer
unloads his rifle...
on a tree trunk...
he mistook for a
Martian.

A Montabou [sic] farmer recently drove after dark, his oxen in a meadow. Arrived at the enclosure, he suddenly saw, at a distance, a Martian who was staring at him. He "abandoned" his two oxen there and ran into the country. He quickly called two of his neighbors to the rescue and there they were, all three of them, one carrying a lantern, the gun in his shoulder.

The "Martian" was in the same place, still staring at the arriving people who could not help sending him, as a welcome, two resounding "7" shots...

But the impassive "Martian" still stared ironically at the "earthlings". Courageously, however, these advanced and soon found themselves... at the foot of a trunk of an old tree, somewhat human-shaped and whose glowworm imitated the eye of the Martian.
