Christian Literature Society Centenary.

The centenary of the Society and the Religious Tract and Book Society, Madras, was celebrated last evening [October 24] in the Memorial Hall, H.E. the Governor presiding. The proceedings commenced with a prayer. The Lord Bishop of Madras in referring to the work of the Society said that the profuse distribution of cheap and wholesome literature among the masses was a matter of very great importance in India in view of the future spread of education. Mr. M.D. Devadoss referred to the various Missionaries and Indian Christians who had contributed much to the literature of the Society. He said that the great portion of the Indian Society would not have been what it was to-day but for this Society. The Social Reform movement and the Depressed Classes movement were directly the outcome of the Christian ideals conveyed by the publication of this Society. His Excellency in winding up the proceedings said that the personality of Christ and the underlying ideal of the Christian religion made a strong appeal to the Indians.
