from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. In agriculture, a perforated box on wheels, or a special form of cart, for distributing lime over land.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This amount can be applied quite successfully with a manure-spreader, and meets the convenience of the man who burns his own lime and does not want to screen it for use in a lime-spreader.
A good lime-spreader is to be desired, but care must be used to remove any stones or similar impurities in the slaked lime when filling it.
