Description: 

In Faulkner's hunting stories, a "log-line" is a temporary spur railroad that has been built by a lumber company to carry the trees they cut down out of the woods. Therefore the story's "log-line levee" is probably an earthen dyke that has been built to keep the tracks from being flooded when the river rises, though it could instead be the raised and flattened bed on which the tracks run (69).
