An Extraordinary Quilt.

We saw a very extraordinary quilt a few days ago.  It is the handiwork of Mrs. Charlotte Syler, an old lady eighty-odd years old.  In March, 1877, in her 81st year, she began piecing a quilt, not a scrap of it being larger than a silver dime.  The quilt contains about twenty thousand pieces and was finished before Christmas of the year she began it.  Anyone would be surprised at the good sewing done upon the quilt by one of Mrs. Syler’s age.  She is the mother-in-law of T. A. Word, the worthy clerk of our superior court, and is a very spry old lady, we are informed.   We hope Mrs. Syler will live long to bless her family with examples of industry and perseverance.
