Description: 

The hotel across from the courthouse is where "drummers" (traveling salesmen) stay when they're in Jefferson, and where Horace first books a room for Ruby - until the town's "church ladies" make the proprietor evict her (180). In the middle of the night after the trial, Horace is lying awake on the couch in the hotel's "Sample Room," where the salesmen can show their wares, when he hears the sound of the lynch mob.
