The Illustrated Man marches Will and Jim across a meadow to the Carnival and adds them to his collection of figures in the wax museum located at the end of the Mirror Maze. Meanwhile, Mr. Halloway is hastening toward the Carnival, too.
The "World Famous Bullet Trick" will soon be performed before the late night carnival crowd. The Dust Witch is the bullet-catcher, and Mr. Dark calls for a volunteer from the audience to fire the gun. When Mr. Halloway volunteers, the Dust Witch grows fearful. So far, she has been unsuccessful in ridding herself and the Carnival of this man.
