Mushrooms

The Herald of February 5, gave a report of a banquet given at the Westminster by the Mycological Club of Boston. The club numbers about five hundred members and there were about two hundred guests present. It stated that mushrooms were served in eight different courses, and that mushroom toasts, poems, and prose articles followed. Two water-color pictures of mushrooms were given as prizes for the best paper on the subject.

That there is great interest in the study of these curious fungi, is proven by the enthusiasm of the students who are in communication with foreign clubs. The researches of all have discovered and recorded about a thousand varieties, many of which are edible, some of which are curious, and others very rare.
