A fossil oyster, brought down from the Indian country a few days ago by a scienti fic gentlemen has been subjected to a series of experiments with a view to the discovery of some clue to its origin and previous use. The most rigid investigation by well known processes failed to throw any light upon the subject, until a powerful microscope was brought into use. By carefully tracing the corrugated surface of the petrified bivalve, by the aid of the magnifying lens, the mys tery was finally unraveled. The scientists were astonished, as well as delighted, to find upon the adamantine shell the legend "O. B., A. D. 300 M. H. J., agent," which be ing interpreted means, "Oval Brand, in the year of our Lord 300 M. H. Jenkinson, agent." We may as well add that Jenkin son has never given up the agency, but is still selling oval brand oysters here in Yankton. The climax restaurant, J. C. McHaflee, proprietor, located in the.building formerly occupied by Ackley & Ketckum on Third street, was formally opened this morning with very flattering indications of success. The dinner served to-day was prepared and served in the highest style of the cuisine arti and the variety and preparation of the viands left nothing to be desired. The dinner was partaken of by a large num ber of our citizens, many of whom will become permanent patrons of the Climax, and the universal verdict was that the new restaurant is just such an institution as Yankton has long needed. Mr. McHaffee is a thorough adept in the business in which he is engsged, and being a cour teous and obliging gentleman, cannot fail of achieving success. We cheerfully com mend the Climax to the lovers of good living, and wish the proprietor an abund ant reward for his enterprise.

That they will in stantly ifive ground is not pretended, but but no medical fact is more certain, or avouched by more competent testimony, than that of these maladies, and others to which it is adapted, entirely euccamb to the influence ofthe medicine,if it will be given a fair trial.
