I.O. is the only Snopes to appear in the first two Yoknapatawpha fictions. In Flags in the Dust he's one of the first members of the family to follow Flem into Jefferson. In this novel he appears, very briefly, among the lower class men in the telegraph office who are investing - making bets - on cotton in the commodity market. He's losing money, and doesn't seem at all upset about it, which makes "Snopesism" seem much less of a threat to the social order than Flem's or Byron's behavior in the earlier novel.
