TESTIMONIALS, To B. F. Weight, Esq., Mount Sotners. Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries about lime for top-dressing, I beg to say I used about 29 owt. to tha acre last spring at Buooleuoh with very great buooess, and falend doing more largely into It for the future. In my opinion It la the belt manure one osn use on dry land, foars ftlthfully, H. T. "Wintkb. May 6, 1889. Mount Somers, Marob 12th, 1889. E. F. Wriciht, Esq., Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land m oats this season, I spread 25 cwt to the acre. The diJßEarence was v-«ry marked. I eetl- j mate the increase at 10 bushels per acre, | and expect a subataDtial increase on portion limed for several yaara. 1 a'ao limed a atrip m a paddock sown with turnips, with abont the same quantity of lime per aore, and the difference' is even more marked tbao m the piece eown,with oats' — Youra Faithfully, John Hoed Mount Bomen, April i9ih, 1889. To B. F. Wbight, Eeq Bib;— The land which I planted with potatoes the fleasoi before last, and from which I did not dig as many potatoes as I put Into it, wan this seiiaon planted again with potatoes, after liming it m the spring, and ihe result was that I got at the rate of four tons to the aore of large and firm potatoes, which,* when cooked, are like balls of flour, while at the Bame time the lime has killed all the sorrel. — John Mubray Sprlnßburn May Ist, 1889. To E. F. Wright, Esq, £ir,— ln reply to yourtj of the 28th I have used your lima on !ei land and land foe turnips and the result is bo satißfftotory m both oasaa I will use your lime largely this year.
