The French Touch-on Saucers

[-], France, May 11. The Mayor of a small village in Northern France told astonished townsfolk [-] was no flying saucer, [-] my wife!

The entire town of Beaucort-[-] was thrown into excitment after a "flying saucer" with weird "Martian visitors" [-] last night near the town station.

[-] bicycling home said he [-] dazzled by light and [-] four little men in pale [-] clothes moving toward [-] townfolks said they [-] peculiar machine giving off red and white lights before it [-] at a 45-degree angle - [-] a flying saucer.

Gendarmes sped to the scene and found some mysterious congealed black plaques of an "elastic substance" but said there was no further trace of the "Martians."

But when the news of the outer spacemen reached Mayor M. Chatelain, according to Agence France Presse, he exclaimed in surprise - "the flying saucer - that's my wife."

It seems that Mme Chatelain, who had been worrying about her cows during the night, wandered out to the pasture, with a lantern that had a red pane of glass, to see how the animals were.

The four Martians turned out to be cows and as for the mysterious substance left behind by the "visitors from outer space" the mayor did not comment.
