A cultivator fired
his gun... on a log

Saulieu (from our C.P.). -- A farmer from Montabou [sic] recently led, after dark, his beefs to a meadow. Arrived at the enclosure he suddenly saw, at some distance, a "Martian" who was staring at him. He "left" the two oxen there and ran to the country. He quickly summoned two of his neighbors to help and off they went, one carrying a lantern, the other two with guns on their shoulders. They were quickly back at the entrance to the meadow. The "Martian" was at the same place, still staring at the newcomers who couldn't help but send him, as a welcome, two resounding "7" shots.

But the impassive "Martian" still stared ironically at our "earthlings". Courageously, however, they stepped forward and soon found themselves at the foot of the trunk of an old tree in somewhat human form, with a glowworm imitating the eye of the "Martian."

Hunting for Martians will soon become as exciting as hunting for "dahut."

But what if our brave cultivators had shot a man, instead of a tree trunk? Please, gentlemen, don't be too easy on the trigger!
