In this excerpt, it says that "The villagers kept their distance, leaving a space between themselves and the stool.", which could arguably mean that there were villagers everywhere except for the stool.
In the excerpt from "The Lottery", the author desribes the center of town vividly and includes details such as shaking the papers in the box, possibly causing some to fall out, being surrounded by buildings because it's the center, and the stool and black box.
The author uses a fairly formal writing style and good descriptions. For instance, not using any slang and little contractions, which could mean that all the characters were rich or royalty.
The theme or moral of "The Lottery" was just because something is customary and hasn't ever changed does not mean it's right.
