Wbioht, EBq., Dear Sir, — In reply to your enquiries re ime, on a piece of land m oats this season, I spread 25 cwt to the acre. The difference was very marked. I estimate the Increase at 10 buihelß per acre, and expeot 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 m the piece sown with oats* —Yours Faithfully, Johk Hood Sprlngburn May Ist, 1889. To E. F. Wbioht, Esq, Bib,— ln reply to yours of the 28th I have used your lime on lea land and land for turnips and the result Is so sattsfsotory In both oases I will use you lime largely this year. Yeura Truly, A. M. MoFabxake. ToE. F. Wbioht, Esq., Mount Somers. Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries about lime for top-dressln? I beg to say 1 used about 25 owt. tothe aore last spring at Buooleuoh with very great euo cess, and Intend going largely Into It fos the future. Io my opinion lt Is tbe best manure one oan use on dry land. Yours frlthfully, H. T. Wintsb. RIVERSDALE. Milton, May lltb, 1889. Mb Wbioht, Dear Sir,— l am In reoelpt of yours of the lltb, re lime, and beg to say that I bave used a good deal of lt 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 turnips, and dressed part of It with fo S tons of email lime to the acre, part with stook-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Guano per acre. Next oropped with oats and barley, and had 70 bushels of barley and 90 bushels of oats to the aore ; lt was laid down one year and then pnt In 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 yesr I booght another property, and I Intend to use 600 tons. I get It at Mtlburn Lime Kilns. This ssme 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 oats until I used the lime, truly, H. DoifH. c E, F, WRIGHT, Proprietor,
