AT THE SAUCERS' SHOP
From where does this being of exceptional capacity come from?
Guéret. – Finally, the Creuse was visited by a flying saucer and a being with
a magic capacity.
After Mrs. Alice Paquet, of Saint-Pardoux-le-Neuf, who claims to have
seen a mysterious and silent machine evolving above her, an inhabitant
of Vaureille, commune of Alleyrat, Mr. Bousard, aged 47, specified
the following facts with the mayor initially, then with the gendarmes:
"After having paid a visit to the town hall of Alleyrat in the evening, to get
a paper there, he had left the borough towards 10:30 P.M. on bicycle. At
approximately 10:45 P.M. he was at the location called "La Badière",
when he suddenly saw somebody who was on the side of the road."
"I stopped, he said, to see what it was while remaining however seated
on my bicycle. I had the impression that I dealt with a man: as I bent down,
this one stood up suddenly and directed two powerful lamps at me who where
projecting a very intense light, of light blue color. This being also had
at each side of the head, a lamp emitting a green light, much weaker than
the two preceding ones. Of a size of 1 m 60 approximately, he was dressed
like a diver. As he stood up, I felt a pressure which I could not define
but comparable with an extremely violent breath which projected me
to the other side of the road."
"I remained approximately 10 minutes without being able to shout nor being
able to call for Help. During this time the two lamps which emitted a blue light
were directed in my direction. Then the being crossed the road crossed and
disappeared suddenly without it being possible for me to see the direction
he took. I was very afraid. While falling under the effects of the lamps, I
felt – and I still feel – pains in the leg and the right hand."
"I affirm that I was not drunk: that it is by no means an
hallucination and that this was not an ancounter with
an inhabitant of the country."
The gendarmes who recorded this curious testimony said that Mr.
Bousard indeed appears to suffer from the two stated members and that
he gives the impression to undergo a rather strong discomfort. His
right hand is swollen and he has difficulties to write. The
bicycle does not bear any trace of fall or collision.
On the spot indicated by the farmer, the ground was freshly stirred up
as by a circular friction of 0 m 70 of diameter. No footmark is
visible in the surroundings.
As one well thinks, this extraordinary fact been the subject of all the
comments of the inhabitants of Alleyrat. Some firmly believe in the arrival
of an unknown being in this place, which they are not far from calling a
"Martian." The large majority however remains somewhat skeptic although
Mr. Bousard has the reputation of a sensible man.
