Description: 

There are many sawmills in the various Yoknapatawpha fictions; along with raising cotton, turning trees into lumber for export outside the county is the most important local business. When the narrative says that Mr. Meadowfill "was so mean as to be solvent and retired even from the savings of a sawmill" (361), it implies how little money there is even in one of the biggest sectors of Yoknapatawpha's economy. Meadowfill's sawmill is somewhere in the county, and we can assume it is outside the bottom lands where cotton grows instead of trees, but beyond that we have to speculate on its location.
