He will not only get pay for his work, but he will get a bonus for his patience and another for his good cheer. A man who makes a strike to have his wages raised from fif teen to eighteen dollars a week may get the raise, and then his wages will stay there. Had he kept quiet and just been content on making himself a five thous and dollar man: he might have gravitated straight to a five thousand dollar desk. I would not risk spoiling my chances for a big promotion by asking for a little one, and it is but a trite truism to say that no man ever received a big promo tion because he demanded it he got it because he was worthy, and for no other reason. Ask the man who receives ten thousand dollars a year salary how he managed to obtain it, and he will tell you he simply did his work as well at he could. Never did such a man go on a strike. The most successful strike is a defeat; and had the man been a striker by nature, sudden and quick in quarrel, and jeal ous of his rights, things would have conspired t o keep him down and under. I do' not care how clever he may be, or how well educated, his salary would have been eighteen a week at the far thest, with a very tenuous hold upon his job. "He that endureth to the end shall be saved." Arizona Pine Lumber The Arizona Lumber & Timber company is preparing an exhibit of finished and rough pine for the territorial fair that would at tract attention anywhere. The prevailing idea in the ex hibit is to show that Arizona pine can be finished in such a manner as to so closely imitate the more costly woods that it takes an expert to distinguish the difference, With this idea in view, specimens of pine have been finished :in the various popular wood finishes, and the beautiful markings ot the pine make a handsome showing. Among the display are a num ber of boards 24 to 30 inches in width and in various lengths, in clear pine. The large variety of mouldings manufactured by this firm will be attractively shown by mount ing a snort section of finished material on black, boards, these to be placed on an easel. Sections of pine logs will be on exhibition. An ordinary saw log would be sent but it would be hard to handle. A table made in mission style shows what can be done m manufactured furni ture. The space secured tor the ex hibit at the fair is 20x30 feet, and it will be fully utilized by the exhibit.. A number of pine trees will be used for decoration. Another feature of the exhibit will be a display of turned arti cles embracing everything from a wacch case up to a porch post. Coconino Sun.
