My Profits Are Mushrooming
A small corner in your basement and a bit of fungus mold are all you need to start a mushroom farm and grow yourself a big-money business.
By Corwin Fred

A few months later the profits had really started mushrooming from my own business—growing and selling mushrooms. As a mushroom farmer, I’ve been squeezed into some tight corners—but I’ve squeezed out again.

The only paragraph where he mentions the actual people of Africa:
“Racial tension is another vital consideration. Kenya, for instance, has its terrible Mau Maus, now on the wane but still something to reckon with. In the Union of South Africa, there is immense, unorganized resentment growing among the non-whites against the white man’s absolute, rigid supremacy. And a good place to stay away from is the shooting-war area of Algeria where the tide of hate runs high. But the timid and overly delicate have never thrived in the world’s frontiers. ”

Cast a glance at the Bright Continent—”incomparably the best source of potential wealth waiting development in the world.”

THE YOUNG man knelt on the dry ground of the Bomi Hills in Liberia, a look of intense concentration on his tanned face. Then he rose and slowly made his way back to headquarters, deep in his own thoughts.
