Milner, British Columbia
As Bank Manager in Milner, B.C. Fred Jones, before he was married, lived upstairs above the bank.  In charge of the safety of the banks property, he was equipped with a pistol, just  in case.  He was a very mild mannered person and the thought of an intruder scared him near to death.
