Description: 

Although Pap calls it "Doc Peabody's store" when he sends the narrator there to buy a "pint of whiskey" (129), this is certainly the office of Doctor Lucius Peabody, a location that Faulkner's readers can visit in other texts, including all of the first three Yoknapatawpha novels. This is the only text, though, where someone buys liquor from the Doc; although Yoknapatawpha, like all of Mississippi at the time, is dry, presumably he can dispense it for medicinal purposes.
