In The Hamlet this "drummer" is a "youngish city man with city ways" who sees Eula when he finds himself in Frenchman's Bend "by accident" and tries to court her, one time wearing "the first white flannel trousers Frenchman's Bend ever saw" (147). The same pair of "ice cream pants" are "ruined" after the local suitors drive him away (147). According to the narrative, this man already has a "wife and family" (148), but that isn't why the young men of the Bend attack him.
