Upon the presentation of a certificate from the board of county commissioners of any county, certifying that any county or independent agricultural society that is then receiving state or county aid has expended a definite sum of money, not less than one hundred dollars, in the furtherance and carrying on of junior club work in the county, the county auditor of such county annually shall draw an order on the county treasurer of such county in favor of said society for an amount equal to the amount so expended in junior club work, if said amount does not exceed five hundred dollars; and in case such amount exceeds five hundred dollars, then such order shall be for five hundred dollars. Said treasurer shall pay said order upon presentation thereof.

In any county in which there is no agricultural society, either county or independent, that is then receiving state or county aid, the board of county commissioners of said county may appropriate annually to any such society, either county or independent, located in an adjoining county, a sum not greater than five hundred dollars for the purpose of encouraging junior club work in the county having no such society. Upon certification by the board of county commissioners of the county having no such society to the auditor of the county having no such society that such an appropriation has been made to an agricultural society in an adjoining county, said auditor shall draw an order on the treasurer of the county having no such society in favor of such society in the adjoining county and said treasurer shall pay said order upon presentation thereof.
