  Where the North Fork of the Stanislaus River begins to lose its youthful grace,vigor,and agility,and broadens more maturely into the plain,there is a little promontory which at certain high stages of water lies like a small island in the stream.To the strongly-marked heroics of Sierran landscape it contrasts a singular,pastoral calm.White and gray mosses from the overhanging rocks and feathery alders trail their filaments in its slow current,and between the woodland openings there are glimpses of vivid velvet sward,even at times when the wild oats and "wire-grasses"of the plains are already yellowing.The placid river,unstained at this point by mining sluices or mill drift,runs clear under its contemplative shadows.Originally the camping-ground of a Digger Chief,it passed from his tenancy with the American rifle bullet that terminated his career.The pioneer who thus succeeded to its attractive calm gave way in turn to a well-directed shot from the revolver of a quartz-prospector,equally impressed with the charm of its restful tranquillity.How long he might have enjoyed its riparian seclusion is not known.A sudden rise of the river one March night quietly removed him,together with the overhanging post oak beneath which he was profoundly but unconsciously meditating.The demijohn of whiskey was picked up further down.But no other suggestion of these successive evictions was ever visible in the reposeful serenity of the spot.
