1. Charley describes Galesburg as a quiet, simple and peaceful place with big old frame houses, huge lawns and tremendous trees. The summer evenings were rather long and people sat out on their lawns in a peaceful world, men smoking cigars and women waving palm-leaf fans.

2. 

  • This was said by narrator, Charley  to himself
  • Charley had gone to third level that he imagined and wanted to buy a ticket. As the clerk calculated the fare, Charley checked how much money he had. Charley only had money for a one sided journey. While Charley was taking out his money, the clerk told him hat this is not the acceptable legal tender and if  Charley tried to act smart, he would not be able to get away with it.
  • Then Charley glanced at his cash drawer and came to know that currency that was used back then was much different and nearly double the size. Charley ran from there because he did not want to go to jail.
