CRESTON, B. C., FBIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1921  No. 43  - Canyon City had it colder over the  week-end than at any time all last  winter. On Sunday morning the mercury registered three below zero.

Clayton and family are indulging in riotous living at present,  due to the good luck of the man of the  house getting a fine buck deer on Saturday.  T. Hickey haa just been engaged as  woods foreman for the Canyon City  Lumber Co., Ltd., and has gone to  work. He has a crew of about twenty  men under him, and if tbe present  sleighing holds will very shortly be  busy on the log haul.  J. B. Winlaw is opening up his camp  near here, and will employ a small  crew all winter. A. G. Samuelson.has  secured a pole cutting contract from  the Winlaw firm, that will keep him  busy this season.  T. Peppeidine left at the first of the  week for Calgary, Alta., where  he wilt spend the winter, and ss accompanied by his sister, Mrs. Bateman.  Mr. Editor, yon made rather a serious mistake in Canyon news last wee ������",  in chronicling the wedding of Mi*. Pochin. Instead of giving the bride's  name as Miss it should haye read Mrs.  Ruby Tregasfces.  .This week we have another wedding  of interest to Canyon people to chronicle, that of the marriage of Miss Bessie White, a former well-known yonng  lady of Canyon, who was wedded last  week at Nelson to Hector -OoWie of j  CalgaryY^ta., to 'whicK' city. ih,e]  newly-maided couple we������t an their  .- honeyrooontrip.    :-���������  "> -   -"--'-I ���������*ttjrSr*-T.'5-     rir    ���������-���������- "  .     .    r r   -r���������^.V      r^.t-rMZmn. tt       . -x    '    -      r-������r  the remaining $15 is being held as a  reserve fund for other cases of need.

The annual- meeting of the United  Farmers called for last Saturday night  had to be postponed until the first  Saturday night in December, -when  new officers will be elected.  Women's tnsMutB  In the absence of the president it  develoyed upon Mrs. Lyne to take  change of the November meeting of  the Women's Institute, which was  held on Friday afternoon, with a fair  turnout of members. The feature of  the meeting was a timely paper by  Mrs; Downs on "The New Woman."  which was a statement of case founded largely on information gathered on  her recent year's sojourn" in the Old  Country. The lighter side of the session was furnished by Mrs. Oatway  who was popularly received in her  recitation, "Bringing up the other  woman's child."  . The purely business feature of the  meeting was the report on the sale of  poppies on Armistice Dav. The total  cash intake was $50.80, of which sum  but one dollar ivas expended in their  mannfantuie. 400 poppies were made  by about a doxen ladies, - and all were  sold. Had this quantity been bought,  as was originally intended, from the  French Children's LiMgue, they would  have cost $21���������at the rate of 0 cents  !mii���������������������therefore the Women's Institute have forwarded that amount to  Ottawa for that purpose. $10 of the  balance has been forwarded the Brit-  tania Beach disaster relief fund,   and  Columbia  Records  10-inch, reg. $1.00  now 85c.  12-inch, reg. $1.������5  now $1.25  Mawson Brothers  The second convention of the snport-  ers of the Liberal-party in West Kootenay���������necessitated by the withdrawal  from the fight of Dr. Hamilton of  Revelstoke---at Nelson on Thursday  last, unanimously chose Roy B.

Organization has everywhere beep speedily effected and a:  brigade of enthusiastic Liberals are  working overtime eto assure Staples'  return. The outstanding ability of  Mr. Staples both as a business "man  and farmer has an appeal everywhere,  and especially in Creston Valley  where* these excellent qualifications  are so widely and personally known.  Mr. Staples' int*euticn is to s^end  practicallv all his time at as many  points in the extensive riding as it is  possible to visit, but a series of meetings on his behalf is being- arranged  for ail Valley points next week, witb  a monster closing rally in the Grand  Theatre on the eye of polling���������Monday, Dec. 5th.

What Will Happen So Freight Rates  party. *-- ^-*  ''%- *  y-.r-.r! x'id*.  A  ~ sv.3*ag������  "mm*  car:  The Terms* 'Farmer9 andyLahor9      *  The meaning of the word Farmer, as applied  to a class is well defined. Farmers have defin  ite aims aud definite needs and. fortunately, because farming is & basic industry, the aims and  needs are identical with the beat interests of the  nation; a fact that has always been recognized.  The meat ing of the word Labor, as applied to  a class or party, is much more complex. Labor  itself is divided into classes whose interestsi-'ajp������  so far removed from each other that they have  absolutely nothing in common.  The railway  conduotor who payls an income  tax rn $4000.00 salary has  no interest in com-,,  raon with the man   who   will  consider, himself  lucky this winter if he oan secure a job in the  woods swamping at $2.75 per dayY  One of the main factors in the coat of the ne-  oestities all must buy is the present high cost of  transportation. Freight rates are exhorbitant  largely because the railway companies a*e unable toopex'ate without showing a deficit, and  the. big item in the cost of operation is the wages  now being paid to railroad employees.-  Cannot Mount Two Horses      *���������  ts It is obvious then that the interests of the  lumberjack���������one branch of the Labot* party���������  cannot be furthered without the probability of  detrimentally interfering with the interests of  the railroad employee wbo belongs to another  branoli of the Labor party.  In other words tlie Labor candidate may, if  the opportunity is given him, effectively take  care of one seotion of the Labor party but it. is  impossible to conceive how he o&-\ tn,\$e care of  the needs of all branches of the Labor party.  Farmers should realize which seotion of the  Labor party Mr. Humphrey will represent if e\  eoted, and the answer is easily sooured. Any  candidate will devote his timo .tp furthering the  interests of the people or party who elect them  and if tne Labor candidate is elected in this constituency his election will be due entirely to the  fact that he has been able to poll a solid railroad  vote. This is admitted by all parties, including  the Labor men themselves.  Whom Will Mr, Humphrey Serve !  Having arrived at the conclusion that Mr  Humphrey expects to go to Ottawa to take oaro  of the interests of railroad employees let us ask  the question? Is there any possible chance of his  doing this and at the same time serving the  farmers?  The wages of   railroad   employees   have   increased from an average yearly salary of $700 in  lOl^f to a 1020.avcruKO of $1-147.00, this anwmntv  - heing the average wage per annum .of a,ll classes  ��������� ���������  '   . -        '    ,     *��������� . ' "''*.'*' '������������������*.���������'���������'?   ������������������ ���������..  lokd of apples ta Medicine Ha^mSerfe  our nearest shipping���������points,' is 05 cents pfer box.  Tlie cost of transporting a car 'load of'apples to  Winnipeg���������possibly onr largest single market���������  costs between $500.00 and $600.00. These are  fixed charges, and are independent of, and ad- /  ditional to, tbe cost of production. From this it  is evident that transportation costs are the  largest single factor in reducing, ranoh costs.  We are told that it is impossible to reduce this  tremendous expense without reducing the wage  bills of the railroads. _  How About the Farmer's Wife '.',,.'������������������  When.we speak of farmers, or Farmers parties,  ���������especially at election time, we have to consider  farmers' wives. It is noticed that one of tbe  planks iir the platform of the Farmer-Labor  party calls, for equal pay for equal work for men  and women. It will be interesting to hear an  explanation of how this plank will apply to farm  women.  Some of the women in this district that we  know of spend the regulation eight hours per  day helping with the outside work and, judging  by the tidy appearance of their homes and of  their children must spend another eighteen  hours with household duties. Surely the farm  , woman who does twenty-six hours' work in  twenty-four hours does at least equally as much  work as tha railroad engineer. Does Mr. Humphrey propose that shose women shall receive the  same pay?  It seems quite apparent, too, that if they are  to receive the same pay, equality can only be  brought about by revising the wages of railroad  employees downward, and it wouldv be* a good  plan for every rancher arid every rancher's wife  to ask themselves the question, Is Mr. Humphrey being supported by railroad employees  with, the expectation that he will endeavor to  benefit the farmers in this constituency by reducing the waftes of' the men whom he claims are  giving him more or less undivided support?.  Farmer-Labor Combination Impossible  Ir it not perfectly clear that in the Farmer-Labor party there has been attempted an impossible combination. It is equality dear that in  asking for tbe support of two classes whose interests are dirootfy opposite to eaob other, and  in return for that support promising to take care  of both farmers and railroad men. Mr. Hum  phrey is attempting the impossible.  Admitting tbe truth of this statement;, i,nd it  seems to us most reasonable, we leave -it to tbe  common sense of the farmers and farmers' wives  to answer the question, Which of tbe two will  get the most attention from the Farmer-Labor  candidate; tbe farmer or the railroader.

Although from surf nee indications  the political situation has. been quiet  in this vicinity, strong committees  have been at work for some time in  the camps of tho different poHticnl  parties.  The executive committees of the  candidate supporting the Meighen  candidate have been meeting regularly, aud at a meeting held la^t Monday  evening it Is reported' that an ajr of  high enthusiasm and confidence marked the proceedings, and it was conceded by Iill parties that Dr; Rose, - sup.  porting the Melghfen'-Goyemment iind  Protection, wonldhead' the polls *fith  a large majority.

STEAD  Published By Special Arrangement With thc Author.  (Continued)  The boy, stood helpless in this eon-  fliction. He had always thought of  difficulties arising between people, between neighbours, friends, or members of a family because one party  was right and the other wrong. It  was his first experience of those far  more strategic quarrels where both-  parties are right, or seem to be right.  He knew something of the depth of  the nature of his parents, and he knew  that beneath an undemonstrative exterior they cherished in secret a love  proportionate to the strength of their  characters. But the long course  down which they had walked together  seemed now to be separating, through  neither will nor power of their own;  it was as though straight parallel  lines ^suddenly turned apart, and  neither lost its straightness la. the  turning.  So he comforted. bis mother with  such words as he could. .Loyalty to  his father forbade' laying any of the  blame on thoste shoulders, and to  blame his mother was unthinkable; se*  with unconscious wisdom he spoke not  of blame at all. Presently it occurred to him to think of his mother's  departure as temporary only, and with  }oy he found that she readily accepted the notion.  "Of course, while we are away, why  shouldn't you have a visit?" he said.

And* then, when I get settled on my own homestead, you'll  come and keep house for xne, won't  you?"  "You're sure you'll want me?" she  asked, greatly comforted by his mood.  "Perhaps you'll be getting your own  housekeeper, too.'*  g������Not while I can have you," he answered. "You'll promise, won't  you? Nothing that has happened, or  can happen, will,, keep you from making my home -yours, will 3t? * And  when Dad gets settled again, and gets  all these worries off hiB mind, then  things'll be different, and you'll come,  even if he is there?"  ���������"Yes, I'll come, -even if he* is there,  if you ask me," she promised.  Harris did not come back that night.  A light rain came up, and he accepted  the excuse to sleep at' Riles'. The  truth was, he* feared for his resolution if it should, be attacked by both  his wife and son. Surrender now  would be mere weakness, and weakness was disgrace; and yet he feared  for himself if put to the test-again.  So he stayed at Riles', and the two  farmers spent much of the night over  their plans. It had been decided that  they were to leave within the next  couple of days, but Harris broke the  news that his wife was going on a  visit, and that arrangements would  have to be made for the care of the  farm. He carefully concealed the  fact that Mary was leaving against his  will, or as a result of any difference.  Such an admission would have damaged him in the estimation of Riles,  who would have put it down to weakness. In Riles's code no insubordination should be tolerated from man or  beast, but least of all from a wife. He  would have found ready means to suppress any such foolishness.  Riles took the suggestion of a few  days' delay with poor grace.        ,  "Yes, an' while you're chasing up  an' down fer a housekeeper the Yankees get all the homesteads. They're  comin' in right now by the trainload,  grabbin' up every thin' in sight. We'll  monkey round here till the summer's  over, an' then go put an' get a sand  farm, or something like. Couldn't  your wife do her visitin' bo other  time?"  "I'll tell you, Riles," aaid Harris,  who had no desire to pursue a topie  which might lead him into deep  water, "you go ahead out and get the  lay of the land, and I'll follow you  within a week. I'll do that, for sure,  and I'll stand part of your expenses  for going ahead, seels' you will be  kind o' representin' me."  The last touch was a stroke of diplomacy. The suggestion that Harris  should pay part of his expenses swept  away Riles' bad humour, and he  agreed to go on the date originally  planned, and get what he called "a  beds on the easy money," while Harris completed his arrangements at  home.  He was to get '"a hede on the easy  money" in a manner which Harris  little suspected.  When Harris returned home the  next forenoon he found that Mary had  already left for Plainville. He sat  down and tried to think, but the house  was very quiet, and the silence oppressed him. . . . He looked at  his watch, and concluded ho had still  Jime to reach Plainville before the  train would 'leave. But that would  mean surrender, and surrender n?eant  weakness. i  CHAPTER XII.  A Whiff of New Atmosphere  Riles found the journey westward a  tiresome affair. His was a soul devoid of enthusiasm over Nature's  wealth or magnitude, and th������ view of  the endless prairie excited in him no  emotion other than a certain vague  covetousness. It was his first long  rail journey in oyer twenty years, but  his thoughts wero on the cost of travel  rather than on tho wonderful strides  which had been made in its comfort  and convenience. Riles ludulgod in  no such luxuries as sleeping-car  berths or meals served in tho diner,  and two nights in a crowded day-  coaoh, with such hasty raeala as could  bo bought for a quarter at wayside  stations, made tho journey a -somewhat exhausting ono.

He found himself addressed  by a man of about his own age, shorter and somewhat lighter of frame and  with a growing hint of corpulence.  The stranger wore a good pepper-and-  salt suit, and the stone on his finger  danced like real diamond.  "Don't mind if I do, since y' mention it,'.' said Riles, with an attempted  smile which his bad eye rendered  futile. One of the bartenders put  something in his glass which cut all  the way down, but Riles speedily forgot it in a more exciting incident. The  man in thc pepper-and-salt suit had  laid half a dollar on the bar, and no  change came back. Riles congratulated himself on his own narrow escape.  "You'll be looking for load?" inquired the stranger, when both were  breathing easily again.  "Well, maybe I am, and maybe I  ain't," Bald Riles guardedly. He had  heard something of tho ways of confidence men, and was determnied not  to be taken for an easy mark.  "A man of Borne judgment, I see,"  said his new acquaintance, quito unabashed. "Well, I don't blamo you  for keeping your own counsel. The  rush or people and money into the  West has brought all kinds of floaters  in its train. Why"���������with growing  confidence���������"the othor night "  What happened the other night remained untold, Cor at that moment  came a clattering of horse's hoofs on  the wooden walk at tho door, and a  moment later a gaily arrayed cowboy  Todo right into tho room, his horse  prancing and bodying from sido to  side to clear the crowd away, then  facing up to the bar as though it wore  bin manger. Riles expected trouble,  and was surprised when the feat evoked a cheer from the bystanders.  "That's Horseback Goorge," said tho  man in the peppor-and-Rait. "Thoy  say ho sleeps \m his horse. Rides  right Into the bar as n matter of  nourso, and maybe shoots a fow bottles off tho nholvoft as a demonstration  before he goes out. Rut he always  settles, and nobody minds his pecu-  HarUioB,"  Horseback George treated himself  twice, proffering each glass tS his  horwo before touching it himself, and  stroking with one hand the animal's  ears, as he raised the liquor to his  lips. Then he threw a bill at the  bartender and, with a wild whoop,  slapped the horse's legs with his hat,  and dashed at a gallop out of the  bar-rora and away down the trail:   .  The stranger was about to resume  his conversation when a big fellow  nearby shouted In a loud voice, "Come,  pard, set "er up. Who'3 drinkin* with  me?"  No one answered, and the big man  looked about the crowd with a deepening scowl.  "So you're not drinkin*?" he said.  "Fill two glasses, pard, and set 'em  right there." He turned his back to  the bar, resting his elbows on it, and  surveyed the crowd contemptuously,  meanwhile chewing a mouthful of tobacco with a rapid, swinging motion  of the jaw.  "Guess you fellows don't know who  I am," he said.     "4 "  "No, and don't give "a .-damn," said  a lumberjack nearby.  "Well, you will before you're  through. You're goin* t' drink with  me, an' you'll drink with both hands  on the glass. Come up an' take your  med'clne." Aa he spoke his han������3  rested on his hip-pocket.  The head bartender poked him in  the ribs. "No gun play here," he  said.   - "You're not in Montana now."  "I guess I know where I am," he retorted. "An' what d'ye think I pack  a gun for? T* tell the time by? This  (not printable) is goin' V drink with  me, or I'll fix. hisa so'a you c:n see  through him both ways.'* With the  word he whipped out a revolver and  fired into the floor at the lumberjack's  feet, while a considerable part of the  crowd scurried for the-'door.  "Put up your gun, you (equally unprintable)," shouted the lumberjack,  throwing his hat on the floor, "and I'll  crack, your slats quicker'n you can  count 'em."  "It's all right, Pete," said the bartender, addressing the lumberjack.  "You can lick him hands down, but  that won't pay the bills if you get in  the road of a bullet. Now you,"  turning to the other, "stow that artillery, an' stow it quick, or I'll call tho  Mounted Police."  For answer the stranger took a  handful of tobacco from his mouth,  and with a swing of his arm plastered it over the mirror behind the bar.  "That for the Mounted Police," he  said. "Now there's goin' t' be some  drinkin' or some shootin', an' maybe  a little o' Jfroth." He ploughed the  floor with another bullet, and the  crowd .again-visibly... thtmaed ��������� away,-  Riles had backed into a corner; the  man In the pepper-an-salt suit had disappeared.  Having no weapon, the lumberjack  kept his distance, but it epithets could  kill his bullying provoker would have  been carried out -a corpse. The man  with tho revolver, on the other hand,  seemed taking his time, playing with  his victim, like a wild beast, sure of  his prey.  <To be .continued)  LefCuticuraHealYourSkm  In the treatment of all skin  troubles bathe freely with Cuticura Soap and hot water, dry  gently, and apply Cuticura  Ointment to the affected parts.

Five hours sound refreshing sleep does  you more actual good than ten hours restless,  disturbed sleep.  This is because the final conversion of food  into vital tissue and nerve cells goes oh more '  rapidly when the physical and mental forces arc  at rest.  You can't get sound, refreshing sleep if your     J  '    nerves are agitated with tea or coffee. Both these  drinks contain caffeine, which is sometimes very  irritating to the brain and nervous system.

The paragraph above, which  appeared in advertising publicity  in the Nelson Daily News, has  evoked comment that reflects on  the veracity of the Liberal candidate, so it will not come amiss to  state the facts of the case.  According to J. W. Humphrey  of Malakwa, who organized tho  Valley locale of the U.P., any man  who makes his living off the farm  is entitled to membership in the  United Farmers of B.G., and na-,  body denies Mr. Staples is a farmer.  jar  les was canvassed to Join the Creston Local.   ,.  He gave a cheque for the $2:00  membership fee.  His cheque has not been returned.

"The Sill will not let in Canadian wheat,  tut will save to the American farmer the  right to raise a bushel of wheat instead  '.-'of transferrins that right to Canada "-r-  Mr. Fordney, in introducing the Fordney  Emergency Tariff Bill whieh has shut  *! milium* of dollars worth of Canadian  foodstuffs out of the United States  market,  WHILE ties of friendship unite Canada and the United States, tlie attitude of Uncle Y^_.  ia that of "Business First", and Canada cannot and should not hope for any eonsidere*  tion from the United States where the interests of the farmers' and basin-ess neonSe  '''et that country are involved.   *  Uncle Sana has boilt the Fordney Tariff directly against Canadian agrrlealfeere, and set?  additional Tariff proposals are now under consideration to shut out from the United States  Canadian goods of every kind. .,   -'������������������.*���������;  These measure* are due torthe insistence of the American farmer that the United States market shall be retained exclusively for him and that the influx of Canadian farm product* into  that country must cesee. They are also due to a like insistence of United States manufaete>  Mara and workers, who have seen their country develop tremendously sal grow richi nade? a  Protective Tariff, and who believe that a still further increase in Tariff is the only means off  assuring continued prosperity.      Y  CONTRAST THE ATTITUDE OF THE UNITED STATES LEADERS WITH  THAT OF CANADA'S WOULD-BE LEADERS, CRERAR AN& KHia  Crerar proposes to allow American goods to  enter the Canadian saarfret free of duty.

Emergency  tariff, which practically shuts out Canadian  farm products from these markets, and also  in the face of the permanent* tariff now under  consideration at Washington, which gives  every promise of being even more drastic  than the Emergency Tariff so far as our  products are concerned.  In view of the attitude of_the United States  what folly it is for Crerar and King to propose  throwing op-ea the Canadian market to & Hood  mm,  of both agricultural and manufactured pre*  ducts of the United States when there ia net  the slightest possibility off any compensative  advantage to Canada.

Br      Vi  New Canal Needed  for  Tke Federal Elections  It is a commonplace in. all election campaigns for speakers to declare that that particular election contest is the most vitally important one ever held in the history of the country. To some extent, perhaps, such a statement is correct, because, as time passes and  a country grows in population and wealth, coupled with the onward  march of education, science and invention, national issues and problems become greater and more complex, and naturally more is at  stake in reaching a right or wrong decision than was the case.in  years pastiwhen we lived in other and less strenuous times.  In one respect at least such a declaration this year has a weight  and meaning* that ordinarily does not attach to it. Usually the  'people of Canada are given an opportunity of passing judgment upon  the men who administer their domestic affairs, and recording their  verdict on domestic questions, every four or five years. It is, however, ten years since the people of this Dominion had an opportunity  to make their wishes known in regard to policies having a direct  bearing on questions of domestic concern.  In thc last general election in Canada domestic questions were  not up for consideration, and they played but a small part with the  "electors in the marking of the ballots. The issue in 1917 was a  war issue. It occupied the minds and hearts of the people to the  exclusion of everything else. It eliminated old party lines and  broke party allegiances extending* over generations. Tariffs, financial administration-, domestic problems of all kinds, were thrown,  temporarily at least, into the discard. The issue In the minds of  the people, practically to the exclusion of everything else, was  whether the Military Service Act should stand or fall.  Thousands of Conservatives who in 1917 voted for Liberals and  Liberal-Unionists, and thousands of Liberals who voted for Conservatives and Conservative-Unionists, and in so doing sunk all  party views, confidently expected that, as soon as the war was over,  they would be given an early opportunity to express their views on  purely domestic questions. Three years have passed since the  signing of the Armistice, and'ths long waited opportunity has now  come. For the first time since the Reciprocity election of 1911, the \  people of Canada will, on December 6th next, declare their will -in  regard to matters of policy and administration affecting purely domestic affairs. No question of war, or Empire, or foreign poiic}** is  involved in the present contest. The issue can be decided with an  eye and mind single to the individual voters conception of what is  best for Canada in a purely domestic sense.  During the decade that has elapsed many things have transpired  which cannot have failed to broaden the vision of the people of Canada. The war itself, and the after-effects of that great struggle,  have left an indelible mark. In 1911 men only enjoyed the right ol  the franchise; on December 6 women will go to the polls and case  their ballots on a basis of full equality in citizenship with men.  Questions vitally affecting'the material welfare of the Dominion are  to be decided, but there has arisen a new conception of the duty or  government towards the social and moral well-being of the people  who in themselves constitute the nation.  In 1911 doubts were cast, unjustly so, on the loyalty of many  Canadians over what was*, after all, solely a domestic question.  But tiie war settled all doubts as to the loyalty of the people of this  Dominion. They proved themselves Canadian and British both in  the East and the West. The war settled the loyalty cry forever,  thereby rendering a great service to this country, and any man who  tries to rescurrect it will prove himself a traitor to Canada and a  mighty poor politician.  For these reasons alone it is well within the bounds of truth to  say that the approaching election day is a most momentous one in  thc history of the country, and probably the most important since  the dawn of Confederation. It presents an opportunity for the exercise of good citizenship for which all Canadians have been eagerly  waiting. Old hard and fast party lines -have been shattered,  whether for good or ill tinie alone can tell. New ideas in governmental forms and methods are prevalent; the franchise has been  broadened to its utmost limits; new party leaders are directing  affairs; a new national conscience has been awakened.

Awarded (to American Soldier  Panama Wilt Soon Be Too Small  World's Commerce  It is proposed that the American  continent should be cut through again.  The present Panama Canal is used  by an ever-increasing number of ships,  and all the authorities are agreed that  in fifteen years' time it will be quite  inadequate for the world's commerce.  There is a' possibility that, instead  of making a second canal at Panama,  the Nicaraguam-oute may be followed. This was the original plan of the  Americans before they took over the  French works at Panama, and as far  back as 1826 a survey was undertak-en  there on behalf of a British company.  O^wing * to climatic causes ships  would have to spend 43 hours more on  the Nicaraguan route than by way of  Panama, but against this the distance  to San Francisco and New York ends  of the Nicaraguan Canal would be 500  miles shorter than from the ends of  the Panama Canal.-  Kegina Man.
