TESTIMONIALS. To MR E. F. Wbiohx, Mount Soraerr. Canterbury, Dear Sir,— ln reply to yours, re lime, I have only used a little, but the result has been good. I limed 6 acres last year for barley, that I sowed before without lime. I had to feed off with sheep. What I limed was a good orop, and I oonalder paid for the lime, and tbe grata Is so muoh better, you oan see to an lnoh where I put It, One of my neighbour! had .50 bushels where he limed, and what was not limed was hardly worth cutting. Two or three tona I think Is sufficient, bat tome put more. Any Information you may require I shall be pleased to give,— l remain, Dear Sir, Yours Truly, Godjtbby Fosibb.

I estimate the increase at 10 bushels per aore, and expect a substantial increase ou portion limed for several years. 1 also limed a stiip m a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of lime per acre, and the difference is even more marked than m the piece sown with oats* —Yours Faithfully, Johh Hooo
