The Big Idea  (1920) 
by Ray Cummings
Extracted from the Argosy weekly, July 10, 1920, pp. 25-54. Title illustration omitted.

The story of Jimmy, a coal-miner lad with an unfettered imagination. He and his girlfriend Anne are convinced that his dream is the next big idea. But is it really? And, even if it is, will this bumpkin be able to convince the people who matter, the big city businessmen? And—further—will his love survive the siren-songs of sophistication?
