dc.description.abstractFirst Paragraph: | In a recent number, l’Astronomie, the official journal of the Societe Astronomique de France, mentions the case of a French soldier who though captured by the Germans, contrived to escape from his prison. As he was in the enemy’s territory he had to hide during the day, and as he was in a region unknown to him, he wandered about more or less aimlessly during the night. One night, however, when the sky was clear, he happened to look up at the stars. Knowing just enough of astronomy to identify the north star, he was at once sure of his bearings, and could thereafter direct his way towards his own country, which, thanks to the faithful guidance of the stars, he at last reached in safety.en_US
