TESTIMONIALS. To MR E. F. Weight, Mount Somers. Canterbury, Dear Sir,— ln reply to yours, re lime, I bave only used a little, but the result has been good. I limed 6 acres last year for barley, tbat I Bowed before wlthoui lime. I bad to feed off with sheep. What I limed wai a good orop, and I consider paid for the lime, and the grass ls io mnoh 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 limed was hardly worth oottlng. Two or three tons I think Is sufficient, but some put more. Any Information you may require I shall be pleased to give.— l remain, Dear Sir, Yours Truly, God7bby Foster.
