A MYSTERIOUS CRAFT

seem near Valenciennes

VALENCIENNES, September 12. -- A resident of Carouble [sic], near Valenciennes, 31, Mr. Marius Dewlive [sic], 34, worker at the Ateliers du Nord de la France, in Blanc-Misseron, domiciled at the level crossing nr. 97, said that Friday evening around 10 p.m. his attention was aroused by his dog's barking.

He went out immediately, armed with his electric flashlight, and saw, on the railroad running alongside his house, in a particularly deserted place, a dark mass, of oval shape, which could be 6 meters long and 3 meters high.

Turning his lamp to another direction, Mr. Dewilve saw two strange and stocky men whose height did not exceed 1 meter, quickly moving towards the craft. These men had a short head on which the rays of his lamp reportedly reflected as if they were glass globes.

A few moments later, a square of intense light appeared on the sides of the craft. The witness then reportedly closed his eyes and when he opened them again the light and the strange beings had disappeared.

The craft, swaying slightly, went up vertically, emitting smoke. Arrived about ten meters from the ground, the lower part of the craft became red and it disappeared quickly.

Mr. Dewilve reported this strange appearance to the police at Onnaing.

The Air police went to the location but no trace was found.
