Casimir the "seer" is also
a billiard champion

We had the opportunity to meet Mr. Casimir Szymura who, as everyone knows in our region, was the lucky seer of a flying saucer, occupied by four Martians, one of whom, he says, was no taller than the mayor of the Free Commune of Petit-Paris.

Recently, some of his rather skeptical friends gathered to hear his story. He did so with good grace. The Martian's handshake electrified me, he says, and gave me a vigor, a quick wit that makes me another man now. Look, at billiards for example, though I was an honest player, I became unbeatable.

Challenges were immediately launched and for a few hours, Casimir played like a great champion. His great friend, whose name we will not mention, was the only one to bet him. No wonder, it was reported to us, he is also magnetized.
