TESTIMONIALS, Mount Somers, Maroh 12th, 1889. E. F. Wbioht, Esq., Lear Sir, —la repiy to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land io oats this season, I spread 25 cwt to the acre. The difference was vtry marked. I estimate the inorease at 10 buihels per aore, and expeot a substantial inorease on portion limed for several years, i also limed a stiip m a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of lime per acre, and the difference is even more marked than m the piece sown with oats* —Yours Faithfully, Johh Hood Sprlngburn May Ist, 1889. To E. F. Wbight, Esq, Sib,— ln reply to yours of tbe 28th I have used your lime on lea land and Isnd for turnips and the result Is so satisfactory m both oases I will use your lime largely this yesr. Yours Truly, A. M, MgFablanb. ToE. F. Wbioht, Esq., Mount Somen. Dear Sir,— ln reply to yonr enquiries about lime for top-dressing, I beg to say I used about 25 ewt. to the aore last spring at Buocleoob with very great suooess, and Intend doing more largely into It for the future. In my opinion It Is the beet manure one oan use on dry land. Yours frlthf ully, H, T. Wim_bb. May 6, 1889. BIVERSDALE. Milton, May 16th, 1889. Mb 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 nse for both oats and wheat. I cropped tbe land the. first year with tnrnlpa, and dressed part of It with four tons of small lime to the aore, part with stock-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Guano per acre. Next cropped with oats and barley, and had 70 bushele of barley and 90 bushela of oats to the aore ; It was Isid down one year and then put In wheat and gave 40 bushels to the acre. I thoroughly believe we could not get anything like the orops we do If it were not for the lime. This year I boaght another property, and I Intend to uae 500 tons. I gat It at Mllburn Lime Kilns. This same faim I bought about ten yeara ago, the party that ( had It pot on a few loada of the small lime, and it shows ss destlnotly as possible; 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of oats until I used the lime. Yours truly, H. Dunn. F. WRIGHT,
