In addition to daily performing on
the alleys the judge writes a legible
hand, .folds letters, puts same in en
velopes, inserts pen in holder, turns
leaves of books, uses telephone, picks
up large or small articles, takes
money out of pockets, turns door
knobs and carries grips and other ar

clothes, combs hair, laces shoes, uses
tooth brush,-icnife, fork or spoon,
plants, spades or hoes in garden,
mows lawn, winds up and plays phon
ograph, strikes matches, builds fire,
runs automobile, drives horses, swims
and dives.
Corley's mishap occurred while he
was headed for New York. At Utica
he fell under a moving train while at
tempting to board it His recovery
was remarkable, for he was only in
bed 11 days and left the hospital on
the 23d day to return to Texas. Ar
riving home he obtained work as a
contractor. He then evolved and per
fected the hook-like device which
now serves as his left hand, and be
came fairly proficient within a year
after his accident.
Thus equipped Corley qualified as
notary public and read law. A year
later he passed the bar examination
and hung out his shingle as barrister.
Twelve months' practice was follow
ed by his election as justice of the
peace and after four years' service
he was elevated to the office of coun
ty judge. He now is on his second
term.
