In the short story The Lottery by Shirley Jackson at what point does the stories atmoshphere change? Which details or comments begin to make the reader more nervous or uncertain?

In my opinion, the atmosphere really changes when Bill Hutchinson chooses the special slip, and his wife, Tess, becomes nervous and questioning. Up until then, we have no reason to believe the lottery is anything but a good thing..... we have to wonder, why is Tess Hutchinson so upset?
