THOMASTON, Conn. -- In New England, a place that prizes individuals -- the more peculiar, the more cherished -- the Leather Man was and is royalty among hermits. The sad story of his lost love, ruined career, escape from reality and penance resemble the outline of a Russian novel.For almost three decades in the late 19th century, the Leather Man was a solitary ambler, dressed entirely in leather, who walked alone on a repeated circuit west of the Connecticut River and east of the Hudson River.

As students and parents struggled to grasp the enormity of what happened on the Blacksburg, Va., campus a day earlier, an expert warned yesterday that suppressing one's emotions could lead to deeper problems in months or years to come. "You don't want to bottle up," said Dr. Jack Vaeth, a Sheppard Pratt psychiatrist who counsels college students. "It's the bottling up of emotion that's devastating over a lifetime." Though Virginia Tech students were just beginning to avail themselves of counseling offered by the college and other groups, some sought the comfort of home or found solace talking to friends.

From her screened porch just beyond the border of the Carroll County town of Manchester, Brenda Wulforst enjoys a view that takes in squirrels, woodpeckers and deer. But yesterday, she said, she got a glimpse of an animal she never expected to see in her back yard: a black bear. "What a shock," Wulforst said, adding, "My husband and I are very into nature. It was very, very exciting." Wulforst and her husband said they hopped into their Subaru Outback and followed the bear as it lumbered across front lawns and between houses in a nearby housing development before scrambling into the woods.
