This phrase derives from the last words of The Sound and the Fury: "each in its ordered place." It is used when the expected order is radically unsettled, such as when one of the spotted horses goes inside Mrs. Littlejohn's house or the mule gets into Mrs. Hait's yard, and so on. SR

TMT: I added this for the scene in which John Sartoris sends money to the widow of a man whom he killed in The Unvanquished (221), so I don't know whether it will be applicable anywhere else; but nothing else on the list seemed to fit.
