HOME AND FASHION. A LETTER FOR MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS (By MAIDAMIE ROSE.) There wil be nothing startlingly -new in the world of fashion now till summer be gins to wane. At theo moment the laciest and frilliest and, thinnest gowns are beiug worn, and it seems as if the linen. coat mnd skirt and the linen frock were to bo relegated to the background this year. I' have fseen a few, but they all have a eome what out-of-,.ato air, which seems to sug ges t that they areo'of yeaterycar, and which proves that the inodistes have not con cerned themselves in the designing of origi nal "suits." thce robo and blouse-suit be ing omnipotent. Voile, in soft and pretty colors-blue and coral pink salmon Land silver-grey-are much embroidered and are very ponular. The muslin robes are more .thereal thar. ev'"r, and- the silk and chiffon Sfiocks are being kept for gardcn parties-land ivco meetings. There is rather a boom 'in swecct Gimnlicity7 jiuit now

MARS MILIT4NT. OPPOSITION WITH THE SUN. LONDON, 5th January. Mars will appear in th3 north eastertn sky at sunset on Monday, coming into op position with the suna, 58,000,000 miles from the earth. It will probably present a striking ap pearance throughout the week nights cross ing north-east to iorth-west during sunset and sunrise. [Mars comes into opposition with the sun periodically, 'but on this occasion, accord ing to tile officials bf the Melbourne Obser vatory, the spectacle will not be very strik ing, as Mars will be further away from the earth than is usual at such a time. Often at the time of opposition Mars is higher above Lhe horizon and nearer earth, and affords much better opportunities for ob servation. The best time to observe Mars will be at midnipht. The opposition lasts for some days, the distance between Mars and the sun jein.r· increased gradually.]

OUR BENDIGO LETTER. (By "Signa.") :Th. New Yeair carme in to .the music of the bagipipes and th6 solemn peal of chuirch bells. It always .eeems to me that New Year's Zve attracts larger crowds t t tJi6 streets than Chlristinas Eve. One is iild iiow to seeing crowds aibout the Alex aandra Fountain awaiting the appearance of pipers. As soon as. thi Caledonian con certi is over. the kilties march to the foun *tain .and play appropriate tunes to usher the New Year in. Then the crowd sings "'Auld Lang Syne," andl the bells peal out through tlie roidld of crackers and other .firework dislays. The bells ilfluence one's mind wonderfully, and nio doubt have much to' do with the faith in which one resolves on higher things. and the general desire to make the new. year in one's life an inumrovement on the old year. Talking of bells turns oiie's thoughts to weddtng bclls. They will ring for a good niay social weddings this year, and the first. engagemeiit for 1914 is already to hand. The bride-...

ANCIENT ROME. INTERESTING DISCOVERY. CITY BUILT BY ROMTULUS. :: mROME, 2nd January. ' Comendat~ore Boui, the emirgelit ar chaeologist, who has been engaged for many: months past in excavation work in the. ceutro of the Palatine IIill area of the city, has discovered the "'Mundus Patens," or heart of the city, built by Romulus. Marcus Terenti us Vairo, "the most learned of the Romans," who was. born 116 B.C., mentions in one of his many works that a monument was erectcd at the spot. fThe "Mundus Patens" was a pit dug in tilhe centre of a newly-built towln, into which were thrown the firstlings of fruit and of o.'ier things. On three separate days of the year it was regarded . as the open door of the infernal regions for the departed spirits to ,pass through. The origin of the city of Rome is to a great extent a matter of mere conjecture. It was inot till a comparatively late period that the well-known legend of Romulus and Remus was framed, and the year B.C. 753 fixed as the date of ...
