The new Bank of North Fork is about to open and hires a gunslinger, Floyd Doniger, for security. The President of the bank, John Maysfield Hamilton sees a future for the community and impresses everyone, including robbers who already have their eye on the place. Doniger's gone straight but knows the bank robbers who assume he has his own plans for the bank. Mark has sold his first pig and he deposits the $5 he's made in the new bank, just as the robbers strike. It's left to Lucas to sort it out and save the bank. Written by garykmcd
