But Prices Remain Firm and Fruit .la In Good Condition Considering Late Season.. Tho navel season In the Covlnn district has been an exceptional one in mahy ways. While the season is nearly a month late and packing houses are experiencing some dlfli- culty In handling the fruit, prices are remaining at u good figure and the ranchets look upon the year as a fairly prosperous one. . Fruit Is beginning to drop from the trees to some extent In this district, the result of the extended packing Reason, but there will be very little loss from this source, although a few ranchers are getting anxious at the long delay In packing. The packing season for navela will probably last a montn longer, whereas it closed on April 15 last year. Some of the pack- Ing houses are running day and night In an attempt to got the fruit to the brisk market, which demands all that Is obtainable at this time. Ranchmen have received considerably higher prices than obtained last Hoason, which was the banner year for tho valley. The total output of navels has Increased lf> per cent, over last year, owing to new acreage and Intensive culture. Fertilizer has.been UHod to the utmost extent In the last three years In this district, and tho result has boon far In excess of the expocliitlona. The Increase In the crop of Valon- elas for this season Is oittlmated at 'X\ per cent over that, of last year. Tho total shipments of tho Covina Fruit lOxchango for I'.tUT were (148 carloads of navels and Valeneias, while it Is estimated thore will he XT'* carloads for this year. Up to April Ifi tho exchange had shipped ATA carloads of navels for tho season of l!)()S-0!l, against -I-IH cars for I HOT-OS. The total shipment* to April If. this year for tho district of Covina, Including all Independent packing houHos, the California Citrus I'nlon and the Covina Fruit lOxchango, were !>S7 carloads of navels, averaging :>S4 boxes each, or a total of I170.00S boxes.
