Hinds, As Ilrt. TESTIMONIALS, Mount Somers, March 12; b, 1889. B. F. Wright, Eeq., Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries re lime, on a piece of land m oats this season, I spread 25 cwt to the acre. The difference was vrry marked. I estimate the increase at 10 bushels per aore, and expect a substartial increase on portion limed for several yeare. 1 also limed a stiip m a paddock sown with turnipß, with about the same quantity of lime per aore, and the difference is even more marked than m the piece Bown with oats* —Yours Faithfully, John Hood Springburn May lit, 1880, To B. F. Weight, Ebq, Sib,— ln reply to yonri of the 28th I have used yonr lime on lea land and land tot turnips and the result is so oatlsfaotory la both oases I will Use your lime largely this year. Yeurs Truly, A. M. MoFablaks. To E. F. Wbight, Esq., Mount Somers. Dear B!r,— ln reply to yonr enquiries about lime for top-dreaslne I beg to say 1 used about 25 owt. to the aore last spring at Buoolenoh with very great suo oess, and Intend going largely into It for the future. In my opinion It Is tbe best manure one oan me on dry land. Yonrs frith/ally, H. T. Wintbb. BIVBR9D4LE. Milton, May 15tb, 1889. Mb Wbight, Dear Sir,— l am In receipt of youri of the llth, 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 nse for both oats and wheat. I oropped tbe land the first year with turnips, and dressed part of It with fo g tons 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 cf barley and 90 bushels of oats to the aore ; it was laid down one year and then put m wheat and gave 40 bnshels 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 bought another property, and I Intend to oie 600 tons. I get it at Mllburn Lime Kilns, This same /aim I bought about ten years ago, the party that had It pot on a few loads of the smah lime, and It ■hows as destlnotly as possible; 60 bushels was about tbe highest I ever got of oats until I used tbe lime. Yoara truly, H. Duiw. F. WRIGHT, WILLIAMS and BLAND. WIAMS k BUI.
