Flying Ships of 1880s.
the Star: The flying saucer, or meteor disk, problem
reminds me that back in the 1880s we had the flying ship
myth. Persons in all parts of the country reported seeing
the lights of supposed flying ships appearing in the sky
at night. They never were visible during the day. Newspapers
carried articles on the front page as true incidents.
remember one article in The Star, wherein a flying ship
landed in a pasture near Everest, Kas., and strangely garbed
men, supposedly from the planet Mars, were seen to select
and slaughter a fine beef animal, load their kill on board
the ship and take off.

Disks" Are in His Eyes.
Kas. - To The Star: After reading the accounts of
the "mystery disks," I went outside the house
and looked at the sky. There I saw, or seemed to see, many
of the same disks streaking across the sky. I called my
parents out to see the same things.
my father, who is a doctor, said the things we saw were
nothing but red blood cells mirrored against the back of
the eye. He said red blood cells were circular in shape
and one side was slightly hollow. This is the same description
as that of the "mystery disks."
this be the answer to the national mystery?
