Un jour, une gazette ennemie de l'Avenir déclara qu'il était scandaleux que la ville de Rennes accordât l'une de ses bourses à un "proxénète" comme Muller. C'était au temps où l'on se battait encore en duel: Muller envoya deux de ses amis demander raison de cette grossière insulte et le journaliste la donna; il expliqua que, pour lui, proxénète (que sans doute il confondait obscurément avec proxène) signifiait: étranger, et qu'il avait voulu marquer par ce mot que Muller était du Havre et non de Rennes. L'affaire en resta là, après que l'offensé eut obligeamment enseigné à son adversaire, dans l'Avenir, que proxénète n'a pas plus le sens d'étranger, que pédicure celui de pédéraste' (French 'Poor Charles Muller, who died for France, had been, while a student with a grant in Rennes, an editor of a Breton journal, named l'Avenir. One day, an enemy newspaper of l'Avenir stated that it was scandalous that the city of Rennes had given one of their student grants to a "proxenete" like Muller. It was at a time when duels were still fought: Muller sent two of his friends to demand the reason for this rude insult and the journalist gave it: he explained that, for him, proxenete (which he no doubt dimly confused with proxenus) meant: stranger, and that he had wanted to point out by this word that Muller was from Le Havre and not from Rennes. The case was allowed to rest there, after the insulted party had obligingly instructed his adversary, in l'Avenir, that proxenete had no more the meaning of stranger, than pedicure that of pederast')
