A very Pure Limestone, (Signed) W; Sxby. TESTIMONIALS. To MR E. F. Wbight,
Mount Bomer«. Canterbury, Dear Sir,— ln reply to yours, re lime, I have only used a little, bub the result has been good. I Umed 6 acres last yeaj for barley, that I sowed before without lime. I had to feed off with sheep. What I limed was a good orop. and I consider paid for the lime, and the grass is so muoh better, you oan see to an Inoh where I put It, One of my neighbours had 50 bushels where he limed, and what was not Umed was hardly worth outtlng. Two or three torn I think Is sufficient, but some put more. Any Information you may require I shall be pleated to give,— l remain, Dear Sir, Yours Truly, GODJRBY FOSTBB.
Mount Somers, March 12th, 1889. E. F. Weight, Esq., Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land In oats this season, I spread 25 cwt to the acre. The difference was very marked. I estimate the increase at 10 bushels per acre, and ezpeot a oubotaptial Increase on portion limed for several years. 1 also limed a strip m a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of lime per acre, and the difference is even more marked thao m the pleoe sown with oats' —Youra Faithfully, John Hoed
