Miss Fannie Blkins, a New York artist, folio vs a unique line of art which las won her a World's Fair medal and diploma, "awarded for accuracy, detail and beauty." Miss Elkins makes anatomical drawings for physicians and surgeons who require suoh in delivering lectures or in illustrating medical books. To the outsider the work at once carries grewsome suggestions. Undoubtedly it is an odd occupation for a woman to choose. Miss Elkins, so far as can be discovered, is the only American woman who has succeeded in making a distinct profession if such drawing. Once within her studio the Idea of grewsomeness is almost lost. The room is a pleasant square one, with a big window overlooking Fourteenth street and admitting a strong light to the table beneath. There are few of the manifold decorations and hanglngs which isuslly appear in studios, but the drawings, framed in oak and gilt upon the wall - part of her World's Fair exhiblt - are not at all alarming. Among these the human eye, much magnlfled, is represented under several aspects, gazing out from circular mats of white board.
