Charley had got his three hundred dollars out of the bank and got them changed into oldstyle currency so that he could go back to the third level and buy the tickets to Galesburg. 

For his three hundred dollars he had got only two hundred dollars old-style currency but he didn’t mind that. The only consolation was that in the year 1894, the two hundred dollars would have more value, as things were much cheaper then than they were now.
