The electron doped manganite system, Bi0.125Ca 0.875MnO3, exhibits large bulk magnetization of unknown origin. To select amongst possible magnetic ordering models, we have conducted temperature and magnetic field dependent small-angle neutron scattering measurements. Non-trivial spin structure has been revealed. Ferromagnetic spin clusters form in the antiferromagnetic background when temperature is decreased to Tc∼108K. With a further reduction in temperature or the application of external magnetic field, the clusters begin to form in larger numbers, which gives an overall enhancement of magnetization below T c.
