And then the Martian beside us raised his tube on high and discharged it, gunwise, with a heavy report that made the ground heave. The one towards Staines answered him. There was no flash, no smoke, simply that loaded detonation.

Description

A tall robot-like creature with long stick legs holds what looks like a cannon above its head in a landscape lined with other similar figures.
The caption reads in the Belgian edition:

Alors, le marsien [sic] qui se trouvait le plus près de nous éleva son tube et le déchargea, à la manière d’un canon, avec un bruit sourd qui fit trembler le sol. Le marsien qui était près de Staines lui répondit. Il n’y eut ni flammes ni fumée, rien que cette lourde détonation.
