Wbioht, Esq., ' a Dear Sir, —ln reply to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land m oats this season, I spread 25 owt' to the aore. The difference was very marked. I estimate the inorease at 10 bushels per aore, and expeot a substantial inorease ou portion limed for Beveral years. 1 alao limed a strip m a paddock sown with turnips, Iwith about the same quantity of lime 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. Wbioht, Esq, But,— 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 m both oases I will use your lime largely this year. Yeura Truly, A. M. MoFablaiui. ToE. F. Wbioht, Esq., Mount Sobers. Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries about lime for top-dressing I beg to say 1 used about 25 owt. tothe aora last spring at Buooleuoh with very great sue oess, and Intend going largely Into It for the future. In my opinion ft Is the best manure one oan use on dry land* Yours filthfully, H. T. WxHxaa, BIVERSDALE, | . MlLioif. May 15th, 1889. Mb Wbioht, Dear Sir,— l am In reoelpt of yours o! 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 use for both oats and wheat, I oropped the land the first year with tarnlps, and dressed part of It with four tons of small lime to the aore, part with stook-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Goano per aero. Next oroppsd with oats and barley, and had 70 bushels of barley and 90 bushels of oats to the aora ; It was laid down one year and. then put m wheat and gave 40 bushels to the aore. I thoroughly believe we oould 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 use 500 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 shows as deitlnotly as poisible; 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of oats until I used the lime. < Yours truly, H. Dmnr. F. WRIGHT,
