THE STORY COUNTY ADVOCATE OF AUGUST 26, 1857, HAS THE FOLLOWING ITEM FOR OUR ATTENTION.

"AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY."

"The board of directors of the county society are requested to meet at the office of the President, on Tuesday next at 2 o'clock P. M. Important business demands attention."

We therefore are informed we had an organization of this kind as early as August, 1857. I think the organization was first made 1856, or early in 1857, but never secured fair grounds until May 7, 1869.
