From the text:

After several minutes of this, the father came abruptly forward and dropped his hand on the stranger`s shoulder. ``The visit is over,`` he said calmly. It was the first time since they`d shaken hands that the two men had touched, and the touch had a galvanic effect upon the stranger: He dropped ruler and pencil at once, froze in his stooped posture, burst into frightened tears.
