Wears Suit Fifty Years Old
Lawrenceburg, Ind., Sept. 17.--Robert E. Carver, 66 years of age, a retired tobacco grower and breeder of blooded stock, living on the Petersburg Pike, is wearing a homespun suit of clothes that was made for his father, by his grandmother, in 1870. The cloth was made of flax, spun by his grandmother, and the coat is the style of 1870—a long frock coat--and the trousers have large legs. The suit is in good condition.
