THE BRITISH ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 14 January 1886
THE BRITISH ELECTIONS. [ETEna's TEzLEAans.J At Bradford thirty-five per cent. of the electors abstained from voting, . and at Hull twenty-three per cent. The liberal majorities were most in the northern boroughs, including Derby and Halifax, although in Sunderland and -Newcastle, bhirty per cent. of the electors did not vote. The Liberals were also undoubtedly triumphant at the midland and eastern boroughs. while in the southern an I' western boroughs the scale turned decidedly in favour of the Con-. servatives. The . Libdral' victories in the counties is regarded as. chiefly due. to Radlical, agitation by the advianced Liberals, who have froA the outset placed a clear and definite kogramme befora' the . counties, . and have on th r whole strengthened thei. positions. 'A 'ven bisimce of parties is ow witnessed.' The only similar occurren was on the 'occasion of the Reform Bi in 1847, but then .the fusion of the Petes. and Li berals sooen disturbed the balcee.

A WEDDING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 14 January 1886
A WEDDING DAY. Iwas married to-day. All the books I have ever read finished with the marriage of the heroine, so I suppose my life ought to Ibe over now. But it seems to me as if it lhsd just begun. I am not much of a heroine-only a country girl who has seen nothing of the world; but George says I know quite enough, and that there is nothing so delightful as a simple young girl who has never been into society. George is my husband. I was eighteen last week. Ever since my thirteenth birth day I have kept a diary, and never missed writing in it once. This in a brand-new one, with a lock and key. I almost wish a year was written in it already. I feel so curious to know about the future. People say it is silly to keep a journal, but I lhavo had a great deal of pleasure out of mine. Sometimes on dull days I have read about merry ones gone by, and then everything has come back quite fresh, and I have seemed to live the pleasant hours over again. Of course I never intend to have any secret...

THE BURGLAR'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 14 January 1886
THE BURGLAR'S STORY. The following curious tale, written by Mr. W. S. Gilbert, apeared in the Sporting and Draewlie eets- When I was eighteen years of age my father, a distinguished begging -letter impostor, said to me, "R?einald, I think it is time that you began-m think about choosing a profession." These were ominous words. Since I left Eton, nearly a year before, I had spent my time very pleasantly and very idly, and I was sorry to see my long holiday drawing to a close. My father had hoped to hare sent me to Cambridge, but business had been very depressed of late, and a sentence of six months' hard labour had considerably straitened my poor father's resources. It was necessary-highly necessary-that I should choose a calling. With a sigh of resignation I admitted as much, and finally intimated that I should like to be a burglar. " Ye?," said my father, mnsidering the subject; "yes, it's afine manlyprofession, but its dangerous, highly dangerous." "Just dangerous enough to be exc...
