Unanswered Gaslight question #3

  We are looking for a copy of Grant Allen's short story "Pallinghurst Barrow" which originally appeared in the London Illustrated News. We only have access to the American edition, bound without the Christmas 1892 supplement which contained the story.

  We'll try to find the story, as collected in the Allen's book Ivan Greet's Masterpiece, but meanwhile, can anyone tell us what other stories appeared in the Christmas supplement for that year?

  Below is an ad for the issue, taken from the London Illustrated News, 1892-dec-24, vol. 11, no. 294., p. 598. (Note the New York address!)

  The authors listed are Mrs. Molesworth, L.F. Austin, Barry Pain, Grant Allen, Frank R. Stockton "and other well-known Authors."

Dennis Lien was able to provide the following answer:
