SHOULD IT BE LAUGHED OFF?

A "MARTIAN"
(WITHOUT SAUCER)
WENT DOWN FROM
NICKEL CUBES

In the wood of Lewarde, Mr. Casimir Stawski, 33, put the gendarmes of the Douais region in search of a Martian. This miner was picking chestnuts when he saw, he said, sticking out of a thicket two cubes shining like nickel. Having approached he found himself in the presence of an extraordinary being whom he described as follows:

He was over a meter tall, with a heavy build, his eyes were slimy. The head was surmounted by a sort of brightly colored mane which descended on the shoulders. The body was covered with hair to the feet. He wore bulges above the eyebrows, his hands were closed and shiny and seemed to have no fingers.

Mr. Stawski did not initiate a conversation with the character.

He panicked and fled at full speed.

After alerting the secretary of the town hall, he warned the gendarmes who spent the night patrolling the woods, but only discovered a few game animals. It should be added that they give little credit to Stawski's words.
