Description: 

This icon represents the "hotel" where Ratliff is at home among the professionals and "drummers" (traveling salesmen) who "gather in the chairs along the banquette" to talk and tell stories (86). We have located it near the Square, but there is no clear sense in the story that the narrator has any one particular hotel or gathering in mind, and in the Yoknapatawpha fictions there are several hotels "in Jefferson itself," which is where these gatherings occur (86).
