TESTIMONIALS. To MR E, F. Wbioht, Mount Somers. Canterbury, Dear Sir,— ln reply to yours, re lime, I have only used a little, but the result has been good. I Hmed 6 acres last year for barley, that I sowed before without ] lime. I bad to feed off with sheep. Wbat I limed was a good crop, and I consider paid for the lime, and the grass is so much better, you oan see to an lnoh where I put It. One of my neighbours had 50 bushels where he limed, and what was not Hmed wis hardly worth cutting. Two or three tons I think Is sufficient, but ■ some put more. Any Information you may require I shall be pleased to give.— -1 remain, Dear Sir, Yours Truly, GODIBBY FOSTBB. Mount Somors, 1 Maroh 12th, 1889. E. F. Wbioht, Esq., Dear Sir, — In reply to your enquiries r*e lime, on a piece «*f land m oats this season, I spread 25 cwt to the acre. The difference was vory marked. I estlmate the luorease at 10 bushels per aore, audexpeot.a substantial increase ou portion limed for several yours 4 . 1 also limed a stnpin a paddock sown with turnips, . with about the same quantity of lime per - acre, and the difference is even more marked tbao m the piece sown with oats* —Yours FaithluUy, John Hoed Mount Somers, April 29th, 1*889; To E. F. Wbioht, Eiq Sib;— The land which I planted with potatoes the season beforo last, and from which I did not dig as many potatoes as I put Into it, was this season planted again with potatooß, after liming it m tho spring, and the result was that I got at the rate of four tons to the aore of large and firm potatoes, whioh; when oooked, are like balls of flour, while at tho same time the Ume has killed all the sorrel. — John Mubbay, Sprlngburn May Ist, JBB9.
