It has been a moot question
whether the second a in Estaca­
da should be pronounced as the
a in far, or as the a in day. S.
P. Pesznecker has been looking
the matter up ai d finds that the
name comes from the French
estacada or the Spanish estaca­
da , both o f which mean a stock­
ade. As a stockade is an inclos­
ure, and Estacada is enclosed
between two dams, upper and
lower, probably the name is de­
rived as above, and not as some
say, a corruption o f Esther Cady,
If the word is o f French or
Spanish origin, then the» a of.the
penultimate syllable should be
pronounced as the a in far.

first or tenth o f the month. 1
