Milto*, May 15tb, 1889, MbWbight, Dear Sir,— l am In receipt of yours of the 11th, T9 lime, and beg to say that I have nsed a good deal of It the last few yean, and have got very good resnlts from its use for both oats and wheat, I cropped the land tbe first year with turnips, and dressed part of It with four tons of amall lime io the acre, part with stock-yard manure, aod part with 4owt Maldon Guano per aore. Next oropptd with oats tnd barley, and had 70 bushels of barley and 90 bushels of oats to the 1 aore ; It was laid down one year and then pat m whwt and gave 40 buiheli to the •ere. I thoroughly believe we could not get anything like the orops we do if It were not for the lime. This year I bought another property, and I Intend to ase 600 tons. I get it at Mllburn Lime Kiln*. This same faim I bought about ten years ago, the party that had It pnt on a few loads of tbe small lime, and It shows as deitloetly v ppisibjoj 40 bushels was about tbe highest I ever got of oats antll I nsed the lime.
