2 CANTALOUPE MARKET Last Shipments From California Reached East in Poor Condition A dispatch from New York to the Produce News under date of July 30 was aa follows: California cantaloupes will be over after this week. The last cars are expected tomorrow and when they clean up that will end the season. The top price for standards during the week was $2.25, and much of the stor k sold $1 to $1.25. For some reason the last run was poor, much of It ar riving soft. Not only was the quality poor, but it did not carry well and came in a very unsatisfactory condi tion. On the whole, the California deal has been satisfactory. Prices have somewhat lower, but not so low but what the growers could make monoy if the stock had all arrived in good condition. The first car of New Mexico mel ons is due to arrive a week from to morrow. It is reported that the qual ity Is better than that from California, and if the yield is 400 cars, as ex pected, there will be quite a sprinkling of those on the New ...
