Wright, 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 aore. The difference was very marked. I estimate the increase at 10 bushels per acre, and expect a substantial increase on portion limed for several years. 1 also limed a stiip m a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of lime per aore, and the difference is even more marked than m the pleoe sown with ofttift —Yours Faithfully, Johk Hood Sprlngburn May Ist, 1889. To E. P. Wbioht, Esq, Bxs., — In reply to yours of the 28ihl have used your lime on lea land and land for turnips and the reialt (s 10 satisfactory In both oases Iwllluseyonv lime largely this year. Yeur« Truly, A. M. MoPablaxk. BIVERBDALE. Milton, May 15th, 188% Ms Wbiqht, Dear Sir,— l Am m receipt of yours of the 11th, re lime, and beg to say that I have used a good deal of it the last few years, and have got very good remit! from Its use for both oats and wheat, I cropped the land the first year with tnrnips, and dressed part of it with font tons of small lime to the aore, part with stock-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Guano per aore. Next cropped with oats and barley, and had 70 buiheli of barley^ and 30 bushels of oats to the acre ; It was laid down one year and then pat In wheat and gave 40 bushels to thai tore. I thoroughly believe we could not get anything like the crops we do if Its were not for tha lime. This yesr I bought another property, and I intend to nse 600 tons. I get it at Mllburn Lima Kilns. This same /aim I bought aboofc ten years ago, the party that had It pat on a few loads of the small lime, and it ■hows as deatlnotly as possible; 6Q busbels was about the highest I evw go| ot Qitl antli I aied the 11ms.
