Hinds, 4s Hi 1 .. TESTIMONIALS, Mount Somen, March 12th, 1889. E. F. Wright, Esq., Dear Sir, — In reply to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land m oats this season, I spread 25 cwt to the aore. The difference was v~ry marked. I estimate the increase at 10 bushels per acre, and expeot 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 piece sown with oats* —Youib Faithfully, John Hood Sprinßburn May Ist, 1889. To E. F. Wbioht, Esq, Sib,— lo reply to yours of the 28th I have used your lime on lea land and land for turnips and the result is so satisfactory m both oases I will use your lime largely this year. Yeun Truly f A. M. MoFIBLAMK. To E. F. Wbxght, Esq., Mount Sotnert. Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries about lime for top-dressing I beg to say 1 used about 25 owt. tothe aore lait spring at Buooleuoh with very great suo cess, and intend going largely into it for the future. In my opinion it la the best manure one oan uae on dry land. Yours frlthfally, H. T. Winxsb. BIVERSDALE. Milton, May 15th, 1889. Mb Wbxght, Dear Sir,— l am m 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 remits from its use for both oats and wheat f I oropped the land the first year with turnips, and dressed part of it with four t6ns of small lime to the aore, part with stock-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Goano 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 In wheat »nd gave 40 bushels to the aore. I thoroughly believe we could not get anything like the orops we do If It were not for the lime. This yeir I bought 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 snows as destlnotly as potsible; 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of oati until I used the lime. Yours truly, H. Dunn. F. WRIGHT,
