Mount Somere. Canterbury, Bear Sir,— ln reply to yours, re lime, I have only used a little, bat the result has been good. I limed 6 aorea last year for barley, that I sowed before without lime. I had to feed off with sheep. What I Koaed was a good crop, and I oonslder paid for the lime, and the grass Is so maoh better, yoa oan see to an lnoh where I put It. One of my neighbours had 50 bushels where he limed, and what was not limed was hardly worth oatting. Two or three tons I think is saffiolent, bat some pat more. Any Information yoa may require I shall be pleased to give.— l. remain, Dear Sir, Yours Truly, GODJBBY FofIKCH.
Mount Somers, March 12th, 1889. E. F. Wright, Esq.; Dear Sir, — In reply to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land m oats thia season, I spread 25 cwt to the aero. The difference was very marked. I estimate the increase at 10 bushelß per aore, and expect a substantial increase on portion limed far several years. 1 also limed a attip m a paddock sown with turnipa, with about the samo quantity of lime per aore, and the difference ia even more marked thao m the piece sown with oats' —Yours Faithfully, 1 John Hood
Mount Bomerft, April 29th, 1889. To E. F. Weight, Eiq Bib,— Tho land which I planted with potbtoes the fieaooa before last, and from which I did not dig as many potatoes as I put into it, was thin B<mijon planted again with potatoes, after liming it m the spring, and the result was that I got at the rate of four tons to the acre of largo and firm potatoes, whiob; when oooked, are lika ballß of flour, whilo at the same time the lime baa killed all the sorrel.— John Mubeay,
j Sprlngburn May Ist, 1889. 1 To E. F, Wbwht, Ehq, gin,— ln reply to yours of the 28th I have used your lime on lea land and land foe turnips and the result Is so satisfactory In both oases I will use yonr lime largely this year. Yours Truly, A. M. MoFaklane. Full particular! as to prloe at Kilns also at Railway Stations will be advertised shortly. w w E. *\ WRIGHT,
