The difference was very marked. I estimate the increase at 10 bushels per acre, and ezpeot a substantial inoreaee 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! aorej and the difference is even more: marked than m the piece sown with oats* ' —Yours Faithfully, Johs Hood Sprlngburn May lit, 1889.

Next oropped with oats aod barley, and hid 70 bushels of barley aod 90 buiheli of oati to the aore} It was laid down one year and then pat In wheat and gave 40 bushels to the aero. I thoroughly believe we could not gat anything Ilka the orops we do If It wen not for the lime. This year I booght another property, and I Intend to as* 800 tons. I get It at Mllburn Lime Kilns. Thia same faim I bonght about ten years ago, the party that had it put on a few loads of the small lime, and: it shows as daitlootly aa possible; 60 boihala was about the highest I ever got of oati until I wed the lime.
