Wright, Esq., Dear Sir,— -In reply to yoor enquiries re lime, on a pleoo of land in oats this Beison, I spread 25 owt to the aore. The difference was very marked. I estimate the lnorease at 10 bushels per aore, and expect a substantial increase on portion limed for several years. 1 also limed a strip in a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of lime per aore, and the difference is even more marked than in the pleoe sown with oats' —Yours Faithfully, Johx Hood Sprlngburn May Ist, 1889. To E. F. Weight, Esq, Put,— ln reply to yours of the 28th I. have used your lime on lea land and land for turnips and the result Is so satlsfsotory in both oases I will use your lime largely this year. Yeurs Truly, A. M. MoFabiahk. To E. F. Weight, Esq., Mount Bomeri. Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enqulrlei about lime for top-dreaslne I beg to say 1 used abont 25 owt. tothe aore last spring at Buooleuoh with very grsat suo oess, and intend going largely Into It for the future. In my opinion It Is the best manure one oan us* on dry land. Yours f r lthfully, H. T. Wihtbr. BIVERBDALE. Milton, May lßtb, 1889. Mr Wiigkt, Dear Sir,— l am In 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, I cropped tbe land the first year with turnips, and dressed part of It with four tona of small lime to tbe aore, part with stock-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Gnano per aere. Next cropped with oats and barley, and hid 70 busbels of barley and 90 busbels of oats to the aore ; It was laid down one year and then put in wheat and gave 40 bethels to the aore. I thoroughly believe we could 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 Lime Kilns* Thlseime 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 destlnotly as possible ; 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of Oiti until I used the lime. Yours truly, H. DuifK. F. WRIGHT,
