In this way, after a month or two of stalemate, these aristocratic families finally seemed to be unable to hold on.

At ordinary times, they always feel superior to others. After all, they are expensive nowadays. However, these days, several people gather at their doorsteps to make trouble. These aristocratic pigs are finally afraid and look down on others before. Now they have gathered at their doorsteps to demand their own statements.
After all, everyone is not stupid to know that Cao Cao is reluctant to send officials to take over their county towns, and there are these aristocratic families. If Cao Cao hastily sends people to take over these county towns, the aristocratic families will make trouble again with their strong power, and then they will have a headache.
In the end, these aristocratic families were forced by all parties to either talk to Cao Xing in person or move out of Jiuyuan County directly. After three months, Cao Xing finally sent officials to control the nine counties of Jiuyuan County.
However, those dissatisfied with Cao Xing’s family base in Jiuyuan County have been cleaned up by Cao Xing, and Cao Xing can also carry out his new policy smoothly, so a phenomenon of political integrity and harmony has emerged during this period
The people work diligently every day, and the government is busy every day, and everything seems stable and not chaotic.
It is said that a big problem has been solved, but there are certainly many new problems that have caused Cao Xing some headaches in the early stage. It is that every county in nine counties must send a county magistrate, Xiancheng County Commandant, and these three are the most basic.
However, the problem of arranging these people’s manpower made Cao Xing seem quite annoyed. Most of them held important positions in the county government. However, these aristocratic men have moved away, saying that these officials have followed their family away.
Feng Yun handed over the list of newly selected county magistrate Xiancheng and others to Cao Xing, and Cao Xing summoned several people who felt quite headache. It was not that these people were not competent enough, but that these people could do it even by the most basic literacy.
Think about it, it is now in a feudal period, and most of the resources are in the hands of aristocratic families. It is already a blessing to be able to read in this era. For example, a poor family in Fengyun was born with a chance to read, which is simply a great gift.
It is said that all these people selected from the common people can’t read. If you can’t even do this, what kind of official should you be?
Cao Xing immediately decided to select more than a dozen literate scholars from Bianyun County and let them go to various places to lecture and teach those important people such as county magistrate Xiancheng and county commandant. Cao Xing will give them up to half a year, and after half a year, they can’t independently review official documents, so Cao Xing will be replaced.
The first batch of teachers hosted by Cao Xing went out from Bianyun County.
Cao Xing gave this group of teachers enough power to recruit students according to the scale of imperial college in the pre-Han Dynasty, so as to teach them. Of course, Cao Xing also made it clear to them that teaching doesn’t have to be Confucian classics
On Legalists, Military Strategists, Confucianists and Taoists, these books can be said to some extent. After all, only with open mind can a hundred flowers blossom. Cao Xing thinks that such open education should make more talents.
After arranging this list of things, Cao Xing threw the big and small affairs departments to the face people, and then he returned to his house and went to a secret room where he lived before. In this period, Xiaoman once went in and out of this room to deliver food to Cao Xing. In other words, no one saw Cao Xing, and everyone didn’t know what Cao Xing was doing. When he saw Xiaoman coming out of Cao Xing’s room every day, he would take a piece of paper with many things written on it, and Xiaoman bought these things and sent them to Cao Xing’s room.
Just when everyone was puzzled, Cao Xing finally came out of his room half a month later. The first thing he did was to point the paper in his hand at the sun.
Many people are curious to ask Cao Xing what he wants to do with a piece of paper, but Cao Xing smiled and told them that from now on, everyone doesn’t have to work hard when writing, but this paper can replace it.
Chapter two hundred and eleven Paper making and printing
In the Three Kingdoms period, paper appeared, that is, the earliest paper Cai Lun paper.
However, Cai Lun paper is the earliest paper-making technology, which is very immature, and some expensive ones say that it is still very high to make a piece of Luoyang paper. At that time, there was a famous saying in Luoyang that Luoyang paper is expensive.
Anyway, it is absolutely impossible for non-dignitaries to afford Cai Lun paper and Cai Lun paper, which are mainly distributed in the court. Even in local county governments, Cao Cao rarely gets Luoyang City at most, that is, when posting notices, he can’t do it at any other time.
So Cao thought of whether Luoyang paper could be simplified? Later generations’ paper was regarded as light industry, but due to the limitation of the times, it was estimated that even the level of light industry was achieved in the Three Kingdoms period, so he pushed forward again and finally thought of something like Xuan paper, which seemed to appear in the DPRK.
Cao Xing recalled the process of making rice paper, so Xiaoman went to the market to buy the straw with green sandalwood skin in Shatian. Of course, there was water in the process of making rice paper.
Cao Xing vaguely remembers the process of making rice paper, such as washing, winding and mixing, and he doesn’t remember clearly, so he kept experimenting.
After a week, the sandalwood bark and shatian straw were finally blended into pulp, and then Cao Xing was exposed to the sun and finally pulled out layers of rice paper.
Although this kind of rice paper still looks a little sallow, it is not much better than Cai Lun paper, but then again, it is much less than Cai Lun paper. Secondly, Cao Cao also keeps in mind that these manufacturing processes are not so complicated. I believe that it will soon be taught that once everyone knows this kind of rice paper, it will become popular.
After another half a month, Cao Xing’s Xuan paper was completely circulated in the market, and the price was not expensive. About a penny could buy two pieces. Everyone could afford it. The people didn’t clap their hands and the people in the government were amazed. Before they wrote, they could write with heavy wooden slips.
But now the Ministry has been replaced by this kind of rice paper. Compared with wooden slips, rice paper is much lower and writing is much more.
More importantly, Xuan paper is much more convenient than wooden slips. It is easy to pick it up. Caoxing county government can be said to be the most efficient county government in contemporary times.
Cao Xing gave this paper to Liu Bend in batches and let Liu Bend take it out, but the price can be wantonly sold. Naturally, the farther away it is, the more expensive it is.
And Liu Ben’s mood is also very happy. The advent of this new thing will inevitably lead to a lot of people snapping up paper. After all, this kind of thing does have many benefits. This time, going out seems to make a lot of money. However, before leaving, Cao Xing also charged Liu Ben Xuan Paper that this method of making things must be kept secret. Now, such things should be firmly grasped.
Cao Xing has now made rice paper, and I believe it will be popular in the Three Kingdoms in a short time, but Cao Xing thinks this is not enough, so he immersed himself in his secret room for a while, but this time is quite fast, and it will only take three or four days.
Cao Xing first found a pile of boards, which looked very thick. Cao Xing called two workers who could read and write words, and asked them to engrave on the board, but the engraving was strange. Usually, it was the opposite after writing.
Although those two workers have some vague ideas, they can’t do what Cao said.
When these words were written in reverse, Cao Xing picked up a knife and carved them on the surface bit by bit. Finally, these words were highlighted.
Later, Cao Xing stained these reverse words with ink and finally set them on the paper surface. Rows of clear words appeared on the paper surface, and printing came out.
