Description: 

While buying drinks legally in New York City, Ratliff mentions "Uncle Cal Bookwright's springhouse back home" in Yoknapatawpha (190). A "springhouse" is a small building constructed over a spring; since spring water can be cool even in summer, springhouses were typically where milk or other dairy products could be kept. Uncle Cal's springhouse is presumably where he makes his moonshine whisky - what Stevens calls Bookwright's "stuff" (190) - or at least where he keeps in cool.
