Description

Boireau dreams of illustrating his name in some brilliant feat. One night, a goddess appeared to him, showing him, in glory, the cross of the Legion of Honor. From then on, Boireau looks for the opportunity that would make his value explode. But what to do? Stop a runaway horse? Passionate about this idea, Boireau throws himself at the head of a peaceful nag who trots gently and reaps a beating from the coachman. Another day, he threw himself into the water to help a drowned man and brought back to the shore... a dummy. After several failures of the same kind, Boireau, discouraged, will renounce the glory, when a gust of wind throws the Minister's hat at his feet. Boireau eagerly picks it up, wipes it carefully, and puts it back in the hands of the character. And, the next day, Boireau exultant, receives the news of his nomination to the Legion of Honor… for exceptional services!
