In 1914, the Rev. Mr. Smith, pastor of the Baptist Church at Sykesville, was traveling Saturday last and had occasion to stop at Falls Creek while changing cars for his destination. At the same time, Miss Simmons, stenographer, was also traveling to visit friends. The reverend and Simmons were strangers to each other, but their suitcases were exactly alike. When Smith's train arrived, he gathered up a suitcase and departed. Simmons did likewise.

Eventually the mixup was cleared up and everybody was happy.
