Nothing New Under the Sun
Solomon says there is nothing new under the sun, and
Solomon is an authority. He may have done some things
that were somewhat shoddy, but it has never been satisfac
torily proven that he ever misrepresented.
Conceded, then, that he knew what he was talking about
when he made that statement, how do you account for the
queer things that bob up now and then that nobody ever
saw before ?
My dear Sir, they are all merely new combinations of old
things. You can't even think of a really new thing. Try
to think of a new animal. To save your soul, you can't
help thinking of legs and eyes and teeth and tails, which
are all old and well known things. Try something else.
The Albuquerque Citizen doesn't claim to have discovered
something elementally new, but they have somel fellows
around the place who are mighty slick at hanging rthe old
things together in new and taking ways. They'd fix you
up an ad that would make even Solomon himself have some
doubts about the old proverb.
