Found on shorpy.com.  According to their website, this was a 1914 illustration for McClure's Magazine.

I found an archive of McClure Magazines.  I was able to get one from 13/14 to load but didn't find this image.  I can't get the rest of them to load, but it could just be the work computers.  You can find the archive here:

I'm not sure.  Shorpy, www.shorpy.com, states that it was from a 1914 McClure's Magazine.  I'm not sure if McClure's is archived anywhere, like the internet database or the LOC website.  If you could locate that magazine, you would have your answer.

Good to know there was such a thing as bad taste in women's magazines from the start. Stabbed thru the heart, with her card sandwiched in there like a gambler's IOU. What, did she trump her partner's Ace?! Prize - Glee Emote

I like this version of the story, regardless of what the original is :)
