Description: 

After Narcissa refuses to allow Ruby to stay in the Benbow home, and the church ladies make the hotel evict her, Horace finally finds another temporary sleeping place for her in "the ramshackle house of an old half-crazed white woman who was believed to manufacture spells for negroes" (200). The only clue to its location is that it sits in off a lane in an "unbroken jungle" on "the edge of town." The woman does not sell whiskey, though police once raided her searching for it, but there is an obvious resemblance between this grim setting and the Old Frenchman place in the county.
