A New Year Resolution HOW TO PROVIDE FOR THE CHILDREN. Is one of those problems which faces most parents,; and which often causes a deal of consideratios and worry, as thay watch the small members of their family gradually g'owing up around them. WhLa is the best they can do for them-how prepare them for the future, for the fight among their fellow beings in the hurry and struggle for existencel Many parents would have been saved regret-perhaps even an naciing heart-many a achild a disappointed career, if a little more thought had been given to the future of'the youngster by those responstble for its existeuce.

It was of course long since realised that motor vehicles would displace horses in the maintenance of suplies to the front, but perhaps oce of the developments which was not quite so certain is the prominent part armoured gun carryirng cars are taking in the operations.
