The increase of effective string tension as a result of the hard gluon kinks on a string is investigated using a parametrization form. In this form the effective string tension increasing with energies in hadron-hadron collisions is due to the mini-jet (gluon) production in the collisions. The data for the energy dependence of the strange quark suppression factor in hadron-hadron collisions are very well reproduced with this mechanism Meanwhile, the experimental phenomena of approximate energy independence of the strange quark suppression factor in e(+)e(-) -annihilations are discussed.
