The films of iron are preformed by electrolysis of a three per cent solution of ferrous ammonium sulfate and deposited on a brass cathode. The magnetic properties are similar to those of evaporated films (Sorenson, Edwards), a large increase in coercive force occurring at a thickness of about 50 millimicrons. This effect for electrolytic iron has heretofore been attributed to the occlusion of hydrogen, but the present work makes this hypothesis appear exceedingly unlikely
