Wright, Esq., Dear Sir, — In repiy to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land m oats thin 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 eeverai years. 1 also limed a stiipin a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of liuae per aore, and the difference is even more marked than m the pleoe sown with oats' — Yours Faithfully, John Hood Sprlngburn May Ist, 1889, To E. F. Wright, Ksq, Eib,— ln reply to yours of the 28th I have used your lime on lea land and land for turnips and the result Is so satisfactory In both oases I will use your lime largely this year. Yeurn Truly, A. M. MoFablane. ToE. F. Wbight, Bbq., Mount Boners. Dear Sir,— ln reply to yonr enquiries about lime for top-dressing, I beg to say I nsed about 25 owt. to the aore last spring at Buooleuoh with very great success, and Intend doing more largely into It for tha future. In my opinion It is the best manure one oan use oo dry land. Yours frlthf ally, H. T. Winiib. May 6, 1889. BIVERBDALE. MiLioir, May 15th, 1889. M* Wright, Dear Sir,— l am m reoelpt of yours of the 11th, re lime, and beg to say that I 1 bare 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 turnips, and dressed part of It with four tons of small lime to the aore, part witb stook-jard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Gaano per aore. Next cropped 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 pat m wheat and gave 40 bushels to the acre. I thoroughly believe we oould not get anything like the orops we do If It were not for the lime. This year I booght another property, and I Intend to use 600 tons. I get it at Mllburn Lima 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 ■hows as distinctly as possible ; 60 bushels was about the hlgheßt I ever got of oati until I used the lime. Youri truly, H. Duiw. F. WRIGHT,
