Povest o Lokýtkovi

Do zdiva veže Novomestské radnice je zasazen železný loket – stredoveká míra. Tady si mohl každý overit, zda jej kupec pri prodeji látky nenapálil. Míra byla umístena na zdi pomerne vysoko, proto ne každý na ni dosáhl. Z tohoto duvodu mestští radní najali muže vysoké postavy, který všem zájemcum pomohl a látku pomocí lokte premeril. Ve stredoveku lidé dostávali jména podle toho jakou práci vykonávali, proto zacali muži ríkat Loket. 
Po letech, když zemrel, zdedil tuto práci jeho syn. Ten však nemel tak statnou postavu, byl menšího vzrustu, proto dostal jméno Lokýtek.
Jednoduchá práce Lotýktovi nestacila, chtel víc penez. Proto se domluvil s nepoctivými pláteníky a zacal ocernovat ostatní poctivé remeslníky. Když k nemu prišel clovek s prosbou o premerení plátny, zeptal se od koho látka je. Podle odpovedi bud míru pochválil, nebo pohanel. Ten, kdo mu dával tajne peníze mel míru vždy dobrou, ostatní byli ocerneni. 
Behem nejaké doby prišla spousta poctivých obchodníku na mizinu. Vrtalo jim v hlave, proc u nich lidé prestávají nakupovat. Až jeden bystrý pláteník prišel na to, v cem by mohl být problém. Vzal své plátno, peclive je nameril a prišel za Lokýtkem s prosbou o premerení. Když se jej Lokýtek jako každého zeptal, odkud plátno má, popravde rekl své jméno. „Tak to vás ošidili, pane. Tam už nechodte“. Jakmile pláteník uslyšel tento ortel, náramne se rozzuril a všem lidem s krikem odhalil Lokýtkuv podvod. Lokýtek ve strachu utekl a nikdo jej už nikdy nevidel. Pláteník z rozcilení onemocnel a druhý den zemrel. 
Vždy ve výrocí pláteníkovy smrti se v noci objeví duch, s desem v ocích pohlédne na železný loket, jako by jej honili probehne kolem radnice a zmizí….

 The Short Cubit legend

In the masonry of New Town City Hall an iron cubit – a medieval measure is embedded. In past ages everybody could check here if the clothier didn’t trick him. The measure was placed a bit higher on the wall, so not everybody was able to reach it. That’s why town councilors hired a tall man who helped measuring the cloth to everybody who asked for it. In medieval people got names after their jobs, so the man was called Cubit. After his death, his son inherited this job. He wasn’t that tall, so people started to call him The Short Cubit.

Easy work was not enough for The Short Cubit. He wanted to have more money. That’s why he made an agreement with crooked clothiers and started to discredit other honest merchants. Every time someone came to him to control the cloth measure, he asked from whom the cloth came. Accordingly to the answer he approved or disparaged the measure. Those clothiers who gave money to Short Cubit had good measure, others had wrong. During certain time many merchants were broke and wondering why folks stopped buying from them.

Then one bright merchant came with an idea. He measured his cloth correctly and came to the Short Cubit asking him for control. As usually The Short Cubit asked for origin of the cloth and merchant answered truly with his name. “Oh, you were tricked, sir. Don’t buy from that clothier anymore.” The merchant hearing this verdict became furious and disclosed Cubit’s trick. Short Cubit didn’t wait a second and ran away. Unfortunately the clothier became sick from rage and died a day after.

On every anniversary of clothier’s death the ghost of Short Cubit appears at the City Hall, with feverous eyes shortly gazes at the cubit on the wall and as chased runs around the corner on city hall and disappears…
