MUSHROOM HUNTS HELD
BY ELITE OF CACTUS FLAT
The most enjoyable events of
the social season are the delectable
mushroom hunts that are held in
and around the environs of Cac
tus Flat after the fall rains have
helped the dainty mushrooms to
lift their silken heads above the
soft and oozy earth. At this time
of the year mushroom season is
in full blast and whenever you see
a flivver parked by the roadside
you may rest contentedly assured
that the occupants of same sre

Mushrooms differ from toad-
stools, in that toadstools are apt
to upset one’s digestion by caus
