This man claims to have seen Martians

A metal-worker of 34 year old, Mr. Marius Dewilde, resident of Quarouble (the Nord), claims to have seen Friday, at about 10:30 p.m., on the railway located at a few meters of his garden, a dark mass which he initially took for a cart. But he heard steps on other side of the balustrade of the garden and directed his flashlight in this direction. He then saw two beings covered of diving-suits. They were of small size, not more than one meter, but very broad of shoulders. They had legs proportioned with their size, but Mr. Dewilde does not know if they had arms.

He then wanted to prevent the escape to the two strange characters, but a port-hole of square design opened in the dark mass posed on the way. A green ray spout out and Mr. Dewilde was, it seems, paralysed on the spot. When the projector died out, he finally recovered his freedom of movement, but the two "Martians" had gone up in their apparatus which had risen above the ground vertically. It was a machine having the shape of a cheese cover, 3 meters high, a diameter from 5 to 6 meters, which disappeared quickly towards the west. The Air Police force investigated, but fail to find any trace on the way crossed by the "Martians."

We quite expected that.
