Hurdle Jumping for Donkeys and A Donkey Derby
Described by Peter and Willum
The chief feature of the Camborne Sports is the donkey racing, for among the Cornish miners the donkey is often looked upon as one of the family.
The hurdles competition is run on the same lines as a jumping contest at a horse show, though with a rather different standard. In the ' Derby ' the donkeys draw ' shays ' —small carriages, consisting of little more than two bicycle wheels, in which the Cornish miners used to race to work. Sometimes in the old days they were actually prosecuted for furious driving and endangering the safety of the public-at more than six miles an hour.
Sheaf pitching used to be a favourite sport in agricultural districts, the sheaf being a twelve-pound truss of straw that has to be' pitched over a bar with a pitch-fork. The record stands at more than twenty-five feet.
On Wednesday or Thursday evenings at varying times—an authoritative speaker will be invited in this programme to discuss some subject of special interest at the moment

Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Symphony No. 3, in C
1 Allegro moderato. 2 Andantino con moto, quasi allegretto. 3 Moderato-Allegro (ma non tahto)
Sibelius struck out on more or less original lines in his Symphony No. 2 in D, but in the Symphony No. 3 in C major he reverted to the more classical style of his Symphony No. 1. 'The texture', says Cecil Gray in his analysis of the symphony, 'is very much lighter in every way than that of either of its predecessors, the style more sensitive, supple, and discreet. The emotional temper of the work, too, is in comparison noticeably restrained ; neither the heights nor the depths of feeling are anywhere touched.'
Two Episodes from the Kalevala
1 The Swan of Tuonela
(Cor anglais solo, DAVID JOHN )
2 The Return of Lemminkainen
The ' Swan of Tuonela ' is prefaced with the following description: ' Tuonela, land of death, a hell of Finnish mythology, is surrounded by a river with black waters and a rapid current, on which the Swan of Tuonela floats majestically, singing.' This work is scored for the unusual combination of cor anglais solo', one oboe, one bass clarinet, two bassoons, four horns, three trumpets, harp, timpani, bass drum, and muted strings. The last-mentioned are divided and sub-divided into many parts forming a rich and picturesque texture of string background.
' The Return of Lemminkainen ' is a direct contrast to ' The Swan of Tuonela ', since the music is scored, with brilliant effect, for full orchestra, and the tempo is extremely rapid. It is intended to describe the return of Lemminkainen from his unsuccessful expedition against Pohjola.
