Description: 

When the Sheriff's car is "within three or four miles of town," they begin seeing "wagons and cars" heading in the opposite direction, "going home from market day" (163). The "inescapable dust" being thrown up by the wagons indicates that the county's main roads, even this close to the "countyseat," are unpaved (163, 162). It is along this stretch that Cotton tries to commit suicide.
