    MR. F. G. JACKSON, whose proposed attempt on the North Pole by Franz Josef Land has been announced, has altered his plans. He now proposes to spend next winter in Nova Zembla, in order to familiarise himself with the conditions of Arctic life, and to test his sledges and other appliances for travelling over the ice. His more serious journey in Franz Josef Land has been postponed for a year, and will have a greatly increased chance of success.
