Description: 

Varner's store appears in many of the Yoknapatawpha fictions as the social center of Frenchman's Bend. In appears in this story only briefly, as the place where Pap learns from Jody Varner that his new horse earlier belonged to Pat Stamper. But even in this brief appearance, we learn about "them other men" at the store (122) - the men of the Bend, who regularly gather on the store's front porch to share stories and gossip.
