The greatest surprise of Mary's life was receiving a dollar on her fourth birthday. She carried the bill about the house and was seen sitting on the stairs admiring it.

"What are you going to do with your dollar?" her mother asked.

"Take it to Sunday School," said Mary promptly.

"To show your teacher?" Mary shook her head.

"No," she said. "I'm going to give it to God. He'll be as surprised as I am to get something besides pennies."
