TESTIMONIALS. To MR E. F. Weight, Mount Somers. Canterbury, Dear Sir,— ln reply to yours, re lime, I hwe only used a little, bat the result hsa been good. I limed 6 sores lust year for barley, that I sowed before without lime. I had to feed off with sheep. What I limed was a good crop, and I oonalder paid for the lime, and the grata ia bo mnoh better, yon oan see to an Inch where I put It. One of my neighbour! had 50 bushels where he limed, and what was not limed was hardly worth oattlng. Two or three tons I think iasnffiolent, but some pot more. Any Information yon may reqalre I shall be pleased to give. — 1 remaln } Dear Sir, Yours Truly, Godfrey Foster. Mount Somers, ! March 12th, 1889. E. F. Weight, Esq., Dear Sir, — In reply to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land m oats thin season, I spread 25 cwt to the aero. The difference was very marked. I eßtlmate the increase at 10 bushels per aoro, and expect a substantial inoreaao on portion limed for Beveral years. 1 also limed a sfciip In a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of lime par tore, and the difference is even more marked than m the pteoe sown with oats* —Tours Faithfully, John Hoed
Mount Bomers, April 29th, 1889; To B. F. Weight, Esq Bib;— Tho land which I planted with potatoes the Reason before last, and from whioh I did not dig as many potatoes as I put Into it, was this season planted again with potatoes, after liming it m tho spring, and. the result was that I got at tho rate of four tons to the aore of large and arm potatoes, which; when oooked, are like balls of flour, while at the same time the lime has killed all the sorrel.— John Mubkay,
Sprlngburn, May Ist, 1889, To B. F. Wright, Esq, Sir,— la ™ply to yours of the 28th I have used your lime on Ie» land and land tot tarnlpa and the result Is so satisfactory m both oases I will use your lime largely this year. Yaurs Truly, A. M. MqFarlane.
