Description: 

"Tallahatchie" (137) is the name of the river that forms the northern border of Yoknapatawpha, a name Faulkner borrows from the river at the northern border of Lafayette County: the Little Tallahatchie. By suggesting that a "blue tick" dog from "up" there has used the dog thicket at Varner's Mill on the river at the southern end of Yoknapatawpha, Ratliff gives credence to the idea that the scents in the thicket have been left there by "every dog in the Congressional district" (137).
