A cultivator
from the Corrèze
a Martian

Ussel. - The gendarmes of the Bugeat brigade, learning by public rumor that a farmer from the hamlet of Mouriéras, commune of Bugeat (Corrèze), Mr. Antoine Mazaud, had conversed with the passenger of a "flying saucer" went to the farmer to have these rumors confirmed.

Mazaud told them that on September 10, at 8:30 p.m., returning from his fields, he had met, on a path, 1,500 meters from his home, an unknown individual of normal size, wearing a helmet without goggles, who shook his hand and kissed him while speaking unintelligible words.

The man then climbed into an unlit cigar-shaped craft, three to four meters long which, taking off vertically, set off in a westward direction, making no more noise than a bee.

Mr. Mazaud then declares that he did not want to talk about this story because he feared that one would make fun of him. He, however, entrusted the matter to his wife who, in her turn, communicated it to the neighborhood women, and this is how the gendarmerie learned about it.

The lieutenant of gendarmerie commanding the section went to the place where no trace was found.
