This was successfully accomplished with some difficulty on account of the gale. Mr. Wellman considered that the airship had proved a success, and while it was too late to make another trial in 1907 he announced that another attempt to reach the pole would be made in 1908.

The distance from Dane's island to the north pole is about 618 sea miles, which would have made the distance for the round trip 1,236 miles. The estimated radius of action of the airship was from 2,250 to 2,700 miles.

COOK EXPEDITION. Dr. F. H. Cook, the explorer, was landed in Smith sound, latitude 79 north, in July, 1907, by the schooner yacht John R. Bradley. His intiention was to cross Ellesmereland early in the spring of 1908 and make an attempt to reach the north pole by means of dogs and sledges, with which he was well supplied. The expedition, which consists of Dr. Cook, another white man and a number of Eskimos, planned to spend the winter thirty miles farther north thau did Peary in 1905-1906.

ANOTHER PEARY EXPEDITION. Robert E. Peary received three years' leave of absence for another expedition to the arctic and made preparations for sailing in the Roosevelt in August, 1907. It was found, however, that the steamer could not be got ready in time and the voyage was postponed until 1908. Peary expects to start from a more westerly point when he begins the trip across the polar sea than he did in 1906, thus taking advantage of the movement of the ice in the direction of the pole. The last time this movement carried him out of his course,
