Noticing that the proceedings of the Iowa Academy of Science do not contain any particular enumeration of the flowers of Story County, the writer is prompted to offer the following list from the herbarium of Vene C. Gambell, who was a student at Ames during the earlier part of the decade of 1880-90. Such a list, perhaps only partial, is thus afforded the academy, and a more permanent and accessible record given the earlier work of one of the brightest young students of science in the history of the state, who, had he been permitted to round out the ordinary span of life, would, doubtless, have attained a degree of scientific success worthy of the promises of his youthful attainments.
