Description: 

"Tallahatchie" (137) is the name of the river that forms the northern border of both the fictional Yoknapatawpha and the real Lafayette counties. By suggesting that a "blue tick" dog from "up" there has used the dog thicket at Varner's Mill on the river at the southern end of Yoknapatawpha, Ratliff gives credence to the idea that the scents in the thicket have been left there by "every dog in the Congressional district" (137).
