Description: 

Before becoming Vinson's partner in the timber business, Montgomery owned "a place he called a restaurant just across the Tennessee line" from Mississippi (112). According to the Sheriff, what it served didn't need to be "chewed" or cooked, but came from "a hole under the floor big enough to hide a case of whiskey in" (112-13). After a man "got killed in it one night two-three years ago," the Tennessee police closed it down (113).
