The file is in a DOS binary EPS format that is not supported by 
epstopdf. The EPS section can be extracted by the Perl script
dosepsbin, see https://www.ctan.org/pkg/dosepsbin.

   (1) dosepsbin --inputfile Silly_1.eps --eps-file s.eps
   (2a) epstopdf s.eps -o s.pdf
   (2b) ps2pdf -dEPSCrop s.eps s.pdf

Yours sincerely
