Description: 

This is the general store near Major de Spain's where Ab Snopes' suit against his landlord is heard. In Yoknapatawpha country crossroad stores regularly serve as the venue for trials - as again later in the novel in the civil suits that Mrs. Armstid and Mrs. Tull bring against Flem and Eck Snopes. (The narrative seems to suggest that Ab's confrontations with de Spain take place far away from Frenchman's Bend, otherwise Jody Varner would have likely have known about it before Ratliff tells him, which is why we put this store on the opposite side of the county.)
