Description: 

Popeye asks his jailors "the name of this dump," the small Alabama town where he is convicted of and executed for a murder he did not commit. The narrative says "They told him," but for some reason it withholds the name from us (310). The town is presumably a county seat; it is large enough to have a courthouse and a District Attorney, and to hang a convicted murderer. Its location on the map is arbitrary.
