SUPPOSE THAT ROCKEFELLER Had merely hidden in a safety vault each dollar that he made, instead of re-investing it what would have been his fortune as compared with his fortune today? Or suppose that he had spent each dollar as in came to hand? Rocke feller's fortune was builded on re-investments. As soon as he got a dollar he put it to work for him. That is the "secret" of his immense wealth. Idle dollars benefit no one. Save a few dollars out of each week or monthly wage and put them to work for you.

' The incidents occurring in the. lives of active trades unionists - contain both pathos and heroism. E.'. R.. Pace, a machinist, residing at Raleigh, N. C, was elected to the lower house of the legislature last fall. He stood alone the only and first unionist member of that body. But he had initiative, courage and persistence. He introduced several bills and suc ceeded in getting three of them en acted into law. One law allows the transportation companies to issue free transportation to widows or minor children of pen sioned, furloughed, superannuated, disabled or diseased employes. Another relating to factory owners providing medical and surgical ap pliances in factories. It is provided that all factories in the state shall be equipped with certain medical acces sories as first aid to injured or ill employes. Aiso a law was enacted providing for the ten-hour day (maximum) in cill iactories after January 1, 1912. This initial labor legislation will undoubtedly spur the unionists, of North Carolina to seek to increase their number of members in the next session. Cereal Workers.

Fort Worth newspapers have gained an increase in wages ranging from 48 to 92 cents per hour. Omaha Painters have just secured another increase in wages, bringing their scale up to 50 ctahta per hour.
