Wrkjht, Esq., Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land In oats this season, I spread SS cwt to the acre. The difference was very marked. I estl* mate the Increase at 10 bushels per acre, and expect a substantial increase on portion limed for several years. 1 also limed a strip 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 plepe sown with oats' —Yours Faithfully, Johh Hood Sprlngburn May Ist, 1889, To E. F. Weight, Ehq, Pir,— ln reply to yours of the 28th I have used your lime on lea land and Upd for turnips and the result \§ so satisfactory m both oases I will use your lime largely this year, Yeurs Truly, A. M. MoFarlanb. To E. F. Weight, Esq , Mount Homers. Dear Blr,-^-In reply to your enquiries about lime for top-dressing, I beg to say I used about 25 owt. to the aore latt spring at Buooleuoh with very great success, and Intend doing more largely into It foe the future. In my opinion It Is the best manure one o»n use on dry land. Yonrs frlthfully, H. T. Winvir; May 6, 1889. riveUsdale. Milton, May 15Hh, 1889. Ms Wbioht, Dear Sir,— l am In 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 results from Its use for both oats and wheat. I cropped the land the first year .with i turnips, and dressed part of It with four tons of small lime to the aore, part with stook-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Guano per aore, Next oropped with oats and barley, and had 70 bushels of barley and 90 bushels of oats to the aore ; It was laid down one year and then put m wheat and gave 40 bushels to the aore. I thoroughly believe we could not gat anything like the crops we do If It were not for the lime. This ye»r I bcroght another property, and I Intend to use 600 tons. I get it at Mllburn Lime Kilns. This same faim I bought about ten years ago, the party that had It put on a few loads of the small lime, and it shows as distinctly as possible j SO bushels was about the highest I ever got of oats until I used the lime. Yours truly, H. Dr/iw. H F. WRIGHT,
